Doctors say Mammography do not should much effect during 30’s. It is recommended to women that the average risk for breast cancer should get yearly mammograms starting at age 45, then every other year starting at age 55. Women can choose to undergo the Mammography at the age 40 if they have any symptoms.
But somehow the recent studies say that mammography is required to start at the age of 30, for the women who have a personal history of breast cancer. It may not be much effective in women at this age but when concerned about the risk for breast cancer it is recommended at the age of 30.
