How to diagnose Breast Cancer

Diagnosing Breast Cancer

For an accurate diagnosis:

  • Screening Mammogram: Regular mammograms after the age of 40 years reduces the risk by early detection of the disease.
  • Breast Self-Examination: Helps you to be breast aware, best done every month, 4-5 days after your periods or on a fixed day if you are post menopausal.
  • Clinical Breast Examination: Yearly visit to a Breast Surgeon for a thorough breast examination after the age of 40 years.
  • Breast Ultrasound: Required sometimes.
  • Self examination forms an important part of early detection of Breast Cancer.
