Women of all ages should stay vigilant to protect their breast health. Regular self-examinations are recommended for all women, especially those past 40 years old. This age is when a mammogram is advised as an added layer of protection against dangerous and often silent cancers. Keeping on top of these preventive measures could be life-saving in the long run!
Self-examining your breasts is a crucial health practice for women at any stage of life. For the most accurate result, examine yourself while in the shower and in front of a mirror once per month. Laying down can help if you’re not able to stand up comfortably.
Pay attention to any strange changes in and around your breasts, and ensure you examine not just the area itself, but also its surrounding areas, like the armpits, for signs of anything unusual, such as lumps or dimples, thickening skin, and so on. Regular self-examination can help spot issues early before they become more severe.

Many factors can play a role in the development of breast cancer, some within our control and some out of it. While age, family history, or breast density may be beyond what we are able to modify ourselves, making changes like adopting healthier eating habits and increasing physical activity could reduce your risk of developing this disease! To learn more about how you can take ownership of minimizing that risk, read our blog post.
