Expatriates might want to organise a mammogram on a regular basis after recent research has revealed that doing so saves lives.
Conducted by the University of Colorado School of Medicine, the study found that having a mammogram every year, rather than every other year, from the age of 40 will save an extra 71 per cent of lives.
Expatriates health insurance customers in the US might already be aware that the US Preventative Services Task Force recommends that breast cancer screenings take place every other year at the moment.
Mark Helvie, director of breast imaging at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, who also worked on the research, said that the current guidelines have "created confusion among women", which has led some to forego mammography altogether.
He added: "Mammography is one of the few screening tools that has been proven to save lives and our analysis shows that for maximum survival, annual screening beginning at 40 is best.
"This data gives women more information to make an informed choice about the screening schedule that's best for them."
