It is important that you take an active role in your breast health. We recommend you look for changes in your breast, including discomfort, pain, soreness or tenderness. If you experience any of these changes, you should discuss them at the earliest convenience with your primary care provider.
By age 40, the American Cancer Society recommends you receive mammograms every year. Mammograms play a key role in early breast cancer detection. Women under age 40 with a family history of breast cancer or other concerns should talk with their healthcare provider.
