Breast Clinics provide comprehensive care for people who have breast cancer and other high-risk breast conditions.
Annual Physical Exam / Breast Self Exam (BSE)
Regular physical examination plas a vital role in the maintenance of health. An annual gynecological examination is an important screening procedure for many types of cancer and includes a physical examination of the breasts. During this procedure, a physician physically examines the breasts to feel for any lumps or irregularities.
The Physician can also use this procedure as an opportunity to teach an individual how to perform a breast self exam (BSE). Women are encouraged to perform a BSE every month, because with regular examination they have a greater chance of finding a lump early in its development.
Breast imaging will involve either a mammogram or ultrasound. The best method of imaging will depend on your age and physical characteristics. You may even have both.
