Early Detection Guidelines

One day there may be a single method for the early detection of breast cancer. Until then, using a combination of methods will increase your chances of detecting cancer in an early stage. These methods include :

 

  • Annual breast thermography screening for women of all ages. 

  • Mammography, when considered appropriate for women who are aged 50 or older.

  • A regular breast examination by a health professional.

  • Monthly breast self-examination. 

  • Personal awareness for changes in the breasts.

  • Readiness to discuss quickly any such changes with a doctor.


These guidelines should be considered along with your background and medical history.
