Breast Cancer Detection

Simply being a woman and getting older puts you at risk for breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer among American women. With the increased use of mammography screening, breast cancers have been detected earlier in their development which is when they are more treatable, saving your breast or your life. If detected early, the five year survival rate for this disease exceeds 95%.

When should I get my breasts checked?

Ages 20-39:
Monthly breast self-examination and a clinical breast examination should be part of a regular health examination by a health expert every year.

Ages 40+:
Monthly self-examination, annual clinical breast examination, and an annual mammogram are highly recommended. This X-ray can detect breast lumps up to five years before they can be felt by a self-breast exam.

If risk factors occur, your doctor may deviate from the above guidelines.

If detected early, doctors can determine what treatments are needed to halt existing bone loss and perhaps reverse the effects of the condition. The single most useful procedure in diagnosis is the bone densitometry test.

When should I get a densitometry test?

  • At the onset of menopause (You have a major risk factor for osteoporosis when the menopause cycle begins before age 45)
  • You have a family history of osteoporosis
