Taking charge of your breast health is an important part of your overall health. It starts with knowing your risk factors for breast cancer and familiarizing yourself with your breasts so you know what's normal for you. That will help you to recognize symptoms or changes that need to be brought to your doctor's attention.
Preventive care is also important. This includes getting mammograms on a schedule that's based on your age, risk factors, and personal preferences.
If you have a family history of breast cancer, your women's health care practitioner or family physician at Kaiser Permanente medical offices may also recommend that you consult with our Genetics Department.
