Breast Health and Awareness

Breast cancer is the most curable in its early stages. At Karmanos Cancer Institute, we know that routine screenings save lives every day. Advocate for your health and talk with a health care professional to make an informed decision on which screenings are right for you.
  • Clinical breast exams are encouraged every one to three years starting at age 18, and every year starting at age 40.
  • Women 40 and older should consider yearly mammograms. Talk with your health care provider about what is right for you.
  • For women at increased risk, talk with your health care provider before age 40 about what screening schedule is right for you.
  • Men should also report breast lumps or changes to their health care provider.

You can lower your risk for breast cancer

  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Limit fat in your diet and include regular physical activity.
  • Limit alcohol intake.
  • Avoid tobacco use.
  • Talk to your health care provider about the risks and benefits of birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy
