Here are three things every woman should know about mammograms:
1. Get a mammogram once a year after age 40. Start at age 35 if you're at high-risk for breast cancer.
2. A mammogram will only take 10-15 minutes.
3. Mammograms don't hurt, but they can be uncomfortable. To minimize tenderness, schedule it in the two weeks after your period.
