Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of death in women, after lung cancer.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women 40 years old get annual mammograms and women age 20 to 39 get a clinical breast exam every three years. All women over 20 should do a breast self-examination every month.
