Screening for Breast Cancer
Recommendation Statement
Date: November 2009
Updated: December 2009
Summary of Recommendation and Evidence

The USPSTF recommends biennial screening mammography for women aged 50 to 74 years.

The decision to start regular, biennial screening mammography before the age of 50 years should be an individual one and take patient context into account, including the patient's values regarding specific benefits and harms.

The USPSTF recommends against teaching breast self-examination (BSE).

The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the additional benefits and harms of screening mammography in women 75 years or older.

The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the additional benefits and harms of clinical breast examination (CBE) beyond screening mammography in women 40 years or older.

The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the additional benefits and harms of either digital mammography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) instead of film mammography as screening modalities for breast cancer.
