Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in American women, but with education and screenings, we can detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable.

The risk of breast cancer increases sharply with age and a mammogram can improve your chances for early detection of breast cancer by adhering to these guidelines for good breast health:

  • Perform a breast self-exam every month.
  • Schedule regular, yearly mammograms. Most doctors recommend that you begin having yearly mammograms at age 40.
  • Have a clinical breast exam conducted by a healthcare professional every year.
  • If warning signs appear, such as pain, a lump you can feel, or nipple discharge, see your doctor immediately.
  • Talk with your doctor about other ways to reduce your risk, including proper diet and exercise.
