Breast Cancer Screening
Breast cancer screening often detects precancerous and cancerous breast tissue that may be present in otherwise healthy individuals. If diagnosed and treated in the initial stages, breast cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer. As a result, it is vital that women are screened regularly at the frequency recommended by their physician.

The tests most commonly used include:
- Clinical breast exam
- Conventional digital mammography
