Susan G. Komen for the Cure recommends the following for breast cancer screening:
• Ask your doctor which screening tests are right for you if you are at a higher risk.
• Have a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk.
• Have a clinical breast exam at least every 3 years starting at age 20, and every year starting at age 40.
If you need help paying for a mammogram or clinical breast exam, please click here for resources, all of whom are Komen St. Louis Affiliate grant recipients.
