What you can do for your health is the following:

  • clinical breast exams by doctors at least every 2 years starting from 20 years of age, and every year over 40 years of age
  • screening with mammography, breast x-ray with a special roentgen for mammography, for 2 years in women over 50 years of age and high-risk women aged between 40-50 years.

Women under 40 years of age with breast cancer cases or other risk factors, should consult first with their doctor about frequency of mammography screening.
