Early Detection Methods
Knowing how your breast normally look and feel will help you detect any changes or symptoms to report to your health care provider as soon as possible. If you find a lump, don’t panic – most lumps are not cancer – and schedule an appointment with your doctor.
The Well-Woman Exam is a great opportunity for you to discuss with your health care provider any questions or concerns you have regarding your breast health. It’s recommended that you visit your gynecologist each year for this exam.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. It is a safe way to detect cancerous tumors and other abnormal breast conditions. Mammograms can detect cancer or other problems before a lump becomes large enough to be detected by touch. Mammograms are considered safe, quick, and relatively painless.
