What to do if you find a lump
If you notice anything abnormal, it’s important to see your primary care physician or gynecologist right away. Your doctor can also help with other questions or concerns you have about your breast health.

Early detection is key
In addition to monthly breast self-exams, it’s recommended that all women get a clinical breast exam at their doctor’s office at least every three years, or yearly after age 40. You should also get a baseline mammogram between ages 40 and 49. Talk to your doctor to determine the best schedule for your screenings, which may vary based on your family medical history or any other increased risk factors.
Please note: If you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine, the Society of Breast Imaging recommends that you wait four to six weeks after vaccination before scheduling your mammogram.
