Breast cancer screenings aren’t recommended for women under forty, however, women with a family history of the disease or with genetic mutations can consult with their doctor and begin having mammograms much earlier.

Unfortunately, breast cancer can occur in women of any age, with 5% of cases occurring in women under the age of forty, so home self-exam plays an important part in early diagnosis as well.

Young women should receive counseling from the doctor on the awareness of breast health and report any changes to their healthcare provider.
