Breast Cancer Screening Recommendations
Breast cancer screening can help find breast cancer early, when the chances of long-term survival are highest.
How We’re Helping
Thanks in part to Susan G. Komen®’s investment in research in early detection and treatment, the breast cancer mortality (death) rate declined 42% from 1989 to 2020 in women in the U.S. .

Women Should Have Access to and Coverage for Mammography
Susan G. Komen® believes all women should have access to regular screening mammograms when they and their health care providers decide it’s best based on their personal risk of breast cancer.
Komen also believes screening should be covered by insurance companies, government programs and other third-party payers, with no out-of-pocket costs for patients.
