Breast cancer screening
A screening mammogram uses low-dose X-rays to provide images of your breasts. It helps find changes in your breast tissue before you can feel or see them. As a result, screening mammograms can catch breast cancer sooner.
The American Cancer Society says the five-year survival rate for cancer that hasn't spread outside the breast is 99%. That's why early detection from a breast cancer screening, like a mammogram, is so important.

Breast screening recommendations
We support recommendations that women of average risk for breast cancer begin annual screening mammograms at age 40. Baylor Scott & White Health encourages you to discuss the benefits, risks, and limitations of mammograms with your doctor.
Our high-risk breast screening program provides tools to help you understand your risk and connect with care that fits your needs.
