Hai. What is the preferred age to do screening for breast cancer?
When the girl grows breasts she could start doing self-examination every month (may be at age 20 +) if she has the question of breast cancer in her family history, it is done.
It’s also a myth that if one person has the problem in his family then he will get it because of the gene as well.Self-breast exams are performed primarily to make sure the a person is healthy and everything in her body goes normal. Breast cancer problems are discovered with the help of these self-exams.
If found early it can be easily cured with proper treatments.Mammograms must begin at age 40, and be performed annually. Women with younger breast cancer in their family history should start much earlier than 40.
This suggestion is endorsed by all nationallyrecognized Cancer organizations.They may start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (breast X-rays) for women between the ages of 40 and 44. Every year women aged 45 to 54 are supposed to get mammograms.
Women 55 and older will turn to mammograms every 2 years or be able to start the screening every year. So hopefully women should start breast screening at 40.
