Breast Cancer Screening

Breast cancer screening allows us to detect tumors as small as 1 cm and should be done regularly. Apart from self-examination, which should be done at least once a month 3-10 days after the first day of your period, starting from the onset of menstruation as a habit, regular screening at the hospital is recommended at least once a year.

Breast Examination by a Doctor: A specialist breast surgeon will examine for abnormalities in the breast, such as lumps, discharge from the nipple, sores, or swollen lymph nodes. They will also interpret mammogram and ultrasound results to plan appropriate care.
