At what age is a mamography recommended?

I got a mamography at 40 years of age but now I hear it is not longer recommended until later?

It is not true. Mammograms are used for women who wants to be sure they do not have any problems and / or finds problems and want to know what it is. If you do not know how to examine your breasts properly, this is the best way to keep your breasts healthy.
