Currently, it is recommended that women between the ages of 40 to 44 years of age should have the option to begin annual mammograms if they wish. Women 44 to 54 years of age should get screened annually and women 55 and older should have the option to test annually or every two years.  Studies have found that breast cancers discovered by annual mammograms are usually smaller and less advanced than those discovered during mammograms that took place every two years.
