how often do women need mammograms? early detection is better than cure right? i also hear that this hurts...is this true?

Women in there 40s need to have a mammogram at least once every 2 years.

I guess the hurting part depends on the size of the breast? its true that during the procedure the breasts are flattened so that they can get a better picture and it is uncomfortable but it doesnt last long. also, they make sure that you are as comfortable as it can be and you can have support ie, a friend/husband/bf with you if it will make you feel better!

hope this was helpful

try to get a mammogram at least twice a year. maybe more if you have history of breast cancer in your family.

a mammogram is one of the best and surest ways of detecting breast cancer. So get them regularly

one mammogram every other year for women in their 40's

sounds about right, but if you have a close relative that has breast cancer, then 1x a year?
