The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends the following guidelines for women:
- If you are age 40 or older, mammograms should be done every year.
- Get yearly breast exams by your Health Care Provider.
- Perform monthly breast self-examinations.
If you do not have insurance and cannot afford a mammogram, the New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) may be able to help. Please visit their site for further information.
