Ages 40 and above need yearly mammograms. A good candidate for screening mammograms has no implants and is not having current breast problems, i.e. feeling a specific lump/pain or nipple discharge. A woman with these breast concerns needs a diagnostic appointment. Women under the age of 35 are also not good screening candidates and should be seen by their physician if they have any concerns.
