Educate Yourself and Others

One in eight women in the U.S. are diagnosed each year with breast cancer and according to data released by the American Cancer Society, Connecticut has one of the highest rates of incidence of breast cancer in the country. Educate yourself about your health risks and encourage others to do the same.

 

Get a breast examination by a doctor or nurse.
- Women ages 20 – 39 should have a clinical breast examination every three years.
- After age 40, women should have a mammogram every year.

Breasts that are dense contain more fibrous and glandular tissue than fatty tissue, making it difficult to detect cancer on mammograms. They are also more likely to develop cancer.

Tell your doctor if anyone in your family has or had breast or ovarian cancer to see how this may impact your risk.

Men, you are not exempt from breast cancer, but your risk is much lower than women. Be alert to lumps in your breasts or changes in the nipple.

Breast self-exams (BSE) are recommended for women ages 20 and older. BSE should be done regularly at the same time every month. Regular BSE teaches you to know how your breasts normally feel so that you can more readily detect any changes.
