Recommended screening for family history?


Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from Kayaykaysc: What testing should I pursue if I have no symptoms, but a strong family history?
Answers - Lynn Hartmann In general we recommend seeing your physician or nurse practitioner every six months for a thorough examination, your own monthly breast self-exam, and an annual mammogram. Depending on the density of your breast tissue and the extent of your breast cancer risk, additional surveillance, such as a breast MRI, may be needed.
