4 Breast Cancer Screening Tests For Breast Cancer

Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before any signs or symptoms of the disease, preferably after 40 years of age. It helps in finding breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat.

1. Mammogram

It is nothing but an X-ray of the breast. In some cases, it is the best way to find breast cancer early, which becomes easier to treat before it is big enough to cause symptoms.

2. Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

It is used along with mammograms to screen women at high risk for breast cancer. With the help of magnets and radio, waves take pictures of the breast.
