Breast health is an important element in maintaining your overall health. Screening methods such as a breast check during your routine gyn exam, regular self-breast exams and screening mammographies can all help to detect breast changes or problems early-on. Early treatment of breast problems can contribute to the success of any treatment that is needed.
We recommend monthly breast self exams in addition to annual breast checks at your routine gyn exam. Your provider can also recommend the interval most appropriate for regular screening mammograms based on your age and health history. If you are experiencing any breast problems or concerns or would like a referral for a mammogram, please contact our office.
