Breast cancer can’t be prevented, but you can take steps to help detect it in its early stages. In addition to taking advantage of the free screenings offered at Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute, women of all ages are encouraged to perform breast self-exams at least once a month. Breast self-exams will help women become familiar with how your breasts look and feel so you can alert your physician if you identify any changes.

When breast cancer is detected early, it can be treated more successfully, increasing the chances for survival.
