Sofía Vergara Reminds Women Over 45 To Get Their Yearly Mammogram

October is breast cancer awareness month and it’s also a good opportunity to schedule your mammogram, especially if you’re older than 45 years old. Sofía Vergara took to Instagram to raise awareness, sharing photos of her getting a mammogram.

Women are encouraged to get a mammogram as early as 40 years old, especially if they have a family history of breast cancer. Women ages 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year, and women older than 55 should get a mammogram every 2 years and screening should continue as long as they want after that.
