Early Detection Tips


One in eight women willl be diagnosed


 Starting at age 40, women should have a yearly mammogram.

 Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam (CBE) about every three years as part of a regular health exam.

 Women should report any breast change promptly to their health care providers.

 Starting in their 20s, women are encouraged to perform a breast self-exam (BSE), checking for changes in texture, color, and shape of tissue.

 Women at increased risk (i.e., family history, genetic tendency, past breast cancer) should talk with their doctors about starting mammography screening earlier or more frequently.

 Positive changes in diet and lifestyle (ie., exercising regularly) can aid in the prevention process
