But while a true test for genetic predispostion toward breast cancer may be years away, education and early detection can greatly increase the chance of survival for breast cancer patients today. The Society recommends that women have a screening mam- mogram by age 40, women 40 to 49 have a mammogram every 1-2 years; women age 50 and over have a mammogram every year. Also, adoctor should conduct a breast examination every three years for women 20 to 40 and every year for those over 40. The Society also recommends monthly breast self-examination for women 20 years and older. Breast cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer among women, and it is second only to lung cancer in its deadliness. The American Cancer Society estimates that about one of every nine American women will develop breast cancer by age 85.
