Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines

The American Cancer Society guidelines for early detection of breast cancer consist of a combination of regular clinical breast examination (CBE) and counseling to raise awareness of breast cancer symptoms for women beginning in their 20s and annual mammography beginning at age 40.

The ACS cancer screening guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer are currently being updated. If you want to know more, contact us at ACSGuidelines@cancer.org.
