It’s important to do at home breast cancer screenings regularly. You can do the check once a month to see if there are any changes that should be examined by a doctor or a mammogram. After the age of 50, an annual screening is recommended to check the breasts and get a mammogram. Then, from age 74 and up, you can decide with your doctor whether to continue the annual screenings.
