At what age do I no longer need a yearly screening mammogram?

Yearly screening mammograms may continue as long as you are healthy. This recommendation is supported by the guidelines of the American Cancer Society, the American College of Surgeons, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American College of Radiology. With respect to older women, the American Cancer Society recommends that after age 55 a woman should be given the choice of a screening mammogram every year or every 2 years.
