With the exception of skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women; one in eight will develop the disease. Women between the ages of 20 and 39 should have a regular breast exam every three years by their healthcare provider. Starting at age 40, women should have annual exams and mammograms, as recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
Beginning in their 20s, women should perform breast self-exams. They should be aware of how their breasts normally look and feel, and report any new breast changes to a health professional immediately. Finding a breast change does not mean there is cancer, but you should be examined. The best time to perform a breast exam is when the breasts are not tender or swollen, or before menstruation. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or have breast implants can perform self-exams.
