Many women under 50, especially Asian women, not getting annual mammograms

Nearly half of women between the ages of 40 and 49 don’t receive their recommended annual mammograms, according a survey of nearly 2,000 women in 2018.  The biggest reason by far, according to the women, was that they had never thought about it.

Asian women were half as likely as White women to report undergoing a screening mammography during the past two years.
