An annual clinical breast exam is part of an annual Well-Women exam. We recommend an annual screening mammogram starting at age 40 to 45.

Monthly breast self-exams are the best way to familiarize yourself with the feel of breast tissue so that you are more likely to feel a lump or other abnormality. Carry out the exam about one week after your cycle ends due to hormone changes in the breast.

Please call 757-595-9905 as soon as possible to schedule an appointment if you have any abnormal signs such as:

  • Lumps
  • Nipple discharge
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Nipple retraction
  • Any other concerns

If the facility or clinic you’ve chosen for your routine mammogram requires an order or you need a suggestion for a place to have your mammogram done, please call our office at 757-595-9905.
