Breast Cancer Screening Can Save Your Life....!!!

One in 9 women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime. One in 27 will die of it. Breast cancer attacks mainly women, however there's 1% of breast cancer patients are men.

Obviously, a woman’s chance for survival improves when a cancer is found early. Cancer screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early.
All women starting from age 20 are recommended to do breast cancer screening according to the following guidelines:

For women in their 20s and 30s, take clinical breast examination once in every three years, for women 40 and older, take it once every year.

For women 40 and older, take a mammogram every year. Mammography may have some limitations and could miss some cancers, it is still considered to be the gold standard for early detection of  breast cancer.
Starting from age 20, women may choose to do breast self-examination. The benefits of BSE may not be too obvious as it's probably a little too late when you can notice any changes. It could still be beneficial in that it helps notice any changes in the breasts so you can report them to your doctor.

Breast cancer is mostly curable if found early and given good treatment. Screening is a way to detect it at its early stage. Bear this in mind: breast cancer screening can save you life. Take the time to do it.
