Early Detection Guidelines

One day there may be a single method for the early detection of breast cancer. Until then, using a combination of methods will increase your chances of detecting cancer in an early stage.

These methods include:

- Mammography, when considered appropriate for women who are eligible for screening.
- Breast thermography as an adjunct for women of all ages.
- A regular breast examination by a health professional.
- Monthly breast self-examination.
- Personal awareness for changes in the breasts.
- Readiness to discuss quickly any such changes with a doctor.

These guidelines should be discussed with your healthcare professional and considered along with your medical history.
