Breast exam

There has not been any breast cancer in my family that I know of. So at what age do I need to start having exams?

  • Talk to your Dr., but I started having mamograms at 30. We do have BC in our family tho. You should do your own breast exams every month no matter what age you are.

  • 40, i'd say..but then again, it was free with DH's insurance, so i did it.

  • You should do self exams at least once a month and have your mamm at 40.

  • Here the exam is totally paid by social security from 40 y/o and every two years.
