Breast Screening Recommendations
Women should get regular screening mammograms to help detect breast cancer early – when it is most treatable.
They should be screened for breast cancer at:
• Ages 40 and older – have mammograms and clinical breast exams yearly
• Ages 20s and 30s – have clinical breast exams as part of regular health assessments at least every three years
• Ages 20 and older – perform breast self-exams and notify doctors of any changes immediately

Breast Cancer Information
Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells develop in breast tissue. Though early-stage breast cancer
does not always have symptoms, some may develop as the tumor grows.
• A painless lump in or near the breast
• A change in breast size or firmness
• Nipple itching, burning, rash, turning inward or discharge
• A warm area in the breast
• Breast skin changes such as dimpling, a sore or a rash
• Swelling in the armpit
Upon experiencing any of the above symptoms, women should contact their
physicians immediately.
