Breast cancer can occur at any age, but it is more likely to occur after your reach 40. Most women should have annual mammograms every year beginning at age 40, according to the American Cancer Society, (ACS) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). If you have a family history of breast cancer, it is recommended that you start your screening studies 10 years prior to the age of diagnosis of the earliest breast cancer in your family.
