What is a mammogram and who should be screened?

Screening mammograms are routine tests used to find early signs of cancer in women who have no breast problems or symptoms. The screening can find changes in the breast that are too small to be felt by a woman or her doctor. Early detection with mammograms plays a large factor in women surviving breast cancer.

  • Women 50 to 74 are most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer, and should plan to have a mammogram every 2 years until they turn 75. This group can self-refer.
  • Women 40 to 49 should discuss the risks and benefits of screening with their health care provider. A referral is needed for a first mammogram in Alberta, which is available online.
  • Women 75 and over can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider.
  • Screening mammograms are not recommended for women under age 40. Women in this age group should discuss their breast cancer risk and mammography options with their health care provider.

What is cervical cancer screening and who should be screened?

Cervical cancer screening, also known as pap tests, are used to find potential health issues or conditions before symptoms appear and 90% of cervical cancer can be prevented with early treatment.

  • Women 25 to 69 should receive a Pap test. After the first Pap test, women should have a Pap test once every three years.

What is colorectal cancer screening and who should be screened?

Colorectal cancer screening looks for early signs of cancer in the digestive tract of people who feel well and have no symptoms. It is easier to treat when found at an early stage with 90% of cases successfully treated when found early.   

  • Everyone aged 50 to 74 should receive regular colorectal screening. Consult your healthcare provider to determine if the FIT home stool test or colonoscopy is the right test.
