An annual mammogram can save your life
Women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health.
Because nearly one-fourth of our breast cancer patients are under age 50, Legacy urges all women to follow this recommendation.
Legacy supports the American Cancer Society guidelines for early breast cancer detection. (See more about our recommendations below.) These guidelines were recently reinforced by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists based on new studies.
