The correct answer is, "B. False" Experts have different recommendations for breast cancer screening with mammograms. Currently, the USPSTF recommends screening every 2 years for women ages 50 to 74. The task force says women ages 40 to 49 should speak with their healthcare provider about whether they should start screening mammograms and how often to get them. The ACS recommends yearly screening for women ages 45 to 54, then a choice of screening every 1 or 2 years for women ages 55 and older. They also suggest that starting at age 40, women should talk with their healthcare provider about their personal risk factors before making a decision about when to start getting mammograms or how often they should get them.

A. True Because breast cancer has high incidence in young age can be detected as early as possible and treated at earliest.

True:-Starting at age 30, women should have a mammogram every 1 or 2 years. Mammograms are an important tool for finding breast cancer early, when it's small, hasn't spread, and is easiest to treat. But the benefits and limits of mammograms vary based on factors like age and personal risk.

Routine mamogrphy without clinical findings and positive genetic history is not advisable.
