Breast cancer screenings help detect breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage. More than nine out of 10 women who detect breast cancer early live at least five years — and many live much longer. These breast cancer detection tools can save lives:
Regular clinical breast exams can detect breast cancer early. Wo men in their 20s and 30s should get clinical breast exams every one to three years, and women older than 40 should get yearly exams.
Yearly mammograms after age 40 are also an important tool in early detection. Mammograms help find growths that are too small to be felt during a breast exam.
Here are few stars that battled cancer and won their mini battles. Breast health is a life battle.
