Breast Health

How often should I have a breast exam?

Breast health starts with BREAST AWARENESS! Look for any changes in your breasts including:

  • lumps

  • dimpling skin

  • color changes

  • inversion of nipples

 

Self breast awareness should be performed throughout the month and repeated regularly.

 

Breast exams by your doctor should be performed annually, most likely during your annual wellness exam. High risk women may have two clinical breast exams yearly.
