In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Farber encourages all women to be proactive with their breast health!
- Perform Self-Exams Monthly: Make breast self-exams part of your monthly health care routine and if you experience any breast changes, consult your physician.
- Clinical Breast Exams: Schedule regular visits to your doctor for clinical breast exams.
- Annual Mammograms: According to the American Cancer Society, you should have an annual mammogram along with a physical exam by your doctor if you are over the age of 40 or at high risk for the disease.
