There is a debate on when to begin having mammograms to check for breast cancer.

 

At this time, some experts believe screening with mammograms should begin when a person is 40 years old and some experts believe it should begin when a person is 50 years old. The experts continue to debate the evidence, risks, and benefits for both.
