Currently, mammogram techniques are believed to be the best way to screen most women for breast cancer, and mammograms become more reliable as you age and your breasts become less dense. Self breast exams should begin when you are in your twenties and performed monthly after that. This self exam acts as a “safety net” to catch a mass that might not visualize on a mammogram.
Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, has been shown to reduce risk.
