In brief: Mammograms

According to the American Cancer Society, American College of Radiology, and others, annual screening mammography should begin at age 40.
Screening may begin sooner if you are a BRCA carrier or are otherwise at high risk.

In brief: Depends

Usually have yearly physical examinations age 20-40 and start yearly mammogram about age 40.
Depends on family history & risks for breast cancer. Notify your doctor if you feel any breast lumps.
