Who Should Get Checked?

Most women age 50 to 74 should have a screening mammogram every 2 years. Trans men and women may need regular mammograms. Talk with your healthcare provider about your individual risk for breast cancer.

Women can be screened at BreastCheck if they are 50 years of age and over and:

  • do not have breast symptoms such as unusual lumps or bloody nipple discharge,

  • do not have a personal history of breast cancer, and

  • do not currently have breast implants.

Women who are not eligible to be screened at BreastCheck should speak with their health care provider about the best breast health care for their individual needs.

Women who have symptoms of breast cancer should be referred to a diagnostic mammography clinic by a healthcare provider to undergo further testing.
