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 :

Mammography for all women who are aged 40 or older.
Regular DITI screening for women of all ages.
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.
