Guidelines say you should have your first screening mammogram between ages 35-40, then annual screenings beginning age 40. While this is paid in full by insurance, an appointment can disrupt your schedule. Unfortunately, skipping your screening may let the problem grow and could lead to more disruptive followup in the future. Happily, we live at a time when many women have become breast cancer survivors.
