Early detection is key in the treatment of breast cancer. Conducting a monthly self-breast exam is the first line of defense against breast cancer. Many health-care providers encourage women to get a baseline mammogram at age 35 and annually after age 40. Women who have a family history of breast cancer should discuss their risk factors with their provider and consider screenings at an earlier age. When breast cancer is detected in an early stage of the disease, the chance of survival is greater and the patient is afforded more treatment options.
