Being breast aware means knowing how your breasts normally look and feel. Your breast change naturally throughout your life. However, it is important to see your doctor or health care provider if you notice any significant or unusual changes. All women are encouraged to regularly look and feel for breast changes.
Breast screening is also important for women of a certain age or at increased risk for breast cancer. Breast screening is the routine examination of your breasts by mammography (breast x-ray) and may also include physical examination of the breasts by a doctor or nurse. Breast screening is a very effective way to find breast cancer early. When detected early, there is a better chance of successfully treating breast cancer.
