UNDATED - A Government task force now says mammograms do the most good later in life.

They suggest women with an average risk of breast cancer get mammograms every other year, starting at age 50.

The American Cancer Society changed its stance last year, saying women should have annual mammograms starting at age 45.

Both groups agree that it's best to consult a doctor to determine the best plan of action.
