Women in their 20s should report any breast changes to their healthcare professional right away and should have a clinical breast examination as part of a regular health exam by a health professional at least every three years. Monthly breast self-exam is an option for women starting in their 20s.


Thirties

Women in their 30s should have a clinical breast examination as part of a regular health exam by a healthcare professional at least every three years, as well as performing monthly breast self-exams.


Forties Plus

Women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. They should have a breast exam by a healthcare professional every year and perform monthly breast self-exams.
