Beat cancer before it begins with breast surgery

Take a precocious approach to breast cancer with our economical breast exams and surgeries.

Schedule periodic mammograms to catch breast cancer quickly

Monthly breast exams and mammograms allow for the detection and treatment of breast cancer before it begins to cause symptoms. Woman in their 20s and 30s should schedule a clinical breast exam (CBS) at least every three years, and women over age 40 should schedule a mammogram screening every year.

Note changes in breast appearance by performing regular self-exams

Beginning in their early 20s, women should perform a breast self-exam (BSE) regularly. This will allow them to figure out how their breasts normally look and feel, so that any changes will be noticed immediately. If symptoms arise, it's important to consult a physician as soon as possible.
