As an African American Woman, At What Age Should I Consider Having a Mammogram?
Take the initiative and start your mammograms at age 30, and get a mammogram every year.
Since breast cancer in African American women before the age of 40 is twice as frequent as the rate in the general population, you must begin to look for it at an earlier time.
Statistics show that African American women tend to detect breast cancer in its later stages. The key is to find it early.
