What You Need to Know About Breast Cancer Screening

by | October 4, 2017

Dr. Bojana Jankovic and Dr. Teresa Dean discuss breast cancer screening guidelines for AVERAGE RISK women as recommended by United States Preventive Services Taskforce (USPSTF) and American Cancer Society (ACS). For any questions about your specific risk, or whether these guidelines apply to you, please talk to your doctor. We always welcome your comments and thoughts!

    Hi ladies,

    Here in the Basque Country, the Basque Public Health ‘Osakidetza’ provides free mammographies every for all women (asymptomatic, no family history of breast cancer, etc.) from age 50 to 70.
    Women with a family history of breast cancer get screened from 35-40 onwards via Osakidetza. Asymptomatic women who are simply health conscious per se have it done privately if under 50 since public health doesn’t cover this at the moment; however, there is talk of introducing it for all women from 40 upwards.
    Osakidetza gynaecologists (and of course private gynaecologists) teach women how to do a self-examination, and there are regular campaigns to bring awareness of this.

    Just thought you might be interested.
    Thank you for your interesting video.
