In brief: Begin at 40, yearly

Unless you have a strong family history of breast cancer or feel that there is something wrong with your breast, yearly screening mammograms should begin at age 40 and continue until no longer physically able.
Please do not be confused by the media's attack on yearly mammography - nearly all the major reputable health organizations recommend yearly exams beginning at age 40.
