Early Detection

Early detection is the key to beating breast cancer. If found early there are more treatment options and a better chance for survival.

Breast cancer screening includes mammograms, clinical breast exams, and in some cases, breast MRIs. American Cancer Society Screening Guidelines include:

  • Yearly mammograms starting at age 40 and continuing as long as a woman is in good health.
  • Clinical breast exam about every three years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and older.
  • Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care provider. Breast self-exam is an option for women starting in their 20s.
