Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women.The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

  • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
  • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
  • Self Breast Exams or examing your breasts on your own, can be a very important part of early detection as well.  Click here for more information on how to perform a Self Breast Exam.

It is always important to let your healthcare provider know, if you are experiencing and symptoms or changes in your breast. 

Some Symptoms and Breast Changes to Watch For:

  • A lump in your breast
  • Skin dimpling
  • Swelling in your breast, collar bone, or armpit
  • Pain 
  • Nipple discharge
  • Breast or nipple redness, dryness, or flakiness

There are many factors that can contribute to your breast cancer risk.  Some factors you are unable to change, such as family history, age, or enviromental factors.  However, here are some tips to help lower your risk, by taking care of your own health.

  • Keeping a healthy weight

Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.
