How is breast cancer detected?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/02/2019

The most common test used to detect breast cancer is mammography, since it can locate suspicious changes in the breasts up to 2 years before a palpable lump appears by the woman or the specialist.

For early diagnosis, it is recommended that women have regular mammograms every 1 or 2 years from age 40 to 69.

It is also not too much to ask a woman to do breast self-examinations in order to detect possible suspicious lumps and to have an annual gynecological check-up.
