Why this is important: The National Cancer Institute recommends that women 40 years of age or older should have a mammogram every 1-2 years to screen for breast cancer. Spokane Regional Health District recommends a yearly screening. Mammograms are the best method to detect breast cancer early when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms.

Definition: Percent of women 40 years of age or older who have had a mammogram in the last year.
