This article discusses how to detect breast cancer through self-examination and mammogram test.

How To Detect Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is now emerging as one of the leading causes of death in women. Unfortunately, we do not have any vaccines to prevent it. The lumps may be painless, so patients may delay the visit to the doctor. A breast lump may be benign (simple or innocent) or malignant (cancer).

Early Detection Is the Key:

Mammogram Test to Ascertain Breast Cancer:

Breastfeeding has been found to be protective against breast cancer in nursing mothers.

If you find any breast lump, nipple change or discharge, please consult your gynecologist immediately.
