Yearly Mammogram Effectiveness in Prevention of Breast Cancer
For women under the age of 50 years, is a yearly mammogram more effective in the prevention of breast cancer when compared to a mammogram done every three years?
Women at a higher risk of developing the condition should get screened regularly before age 50. Genetic mutation carriers are at an especially high risk of developing breast cancer; thus, they are encouraged to have regular mammograms as early as 30.
