When Is The Best Time To Do Breast Exam

?

Breast exam timing is a personal matter, and depends on your lifestyle and the physical and emotional status of you and your breasts. As long as breast examination occurs at least once or twice a year with each mammogram (overview), I do not see any reason to make it more frequent than that. If you feel uncomfortable having an exam after years of one-on-one contact between yourself and your doctor, talk about it with him/her. He or she will try to find time for you even if they are busy.
