Yearly Mammography: Screening mammography has been proven to find cancers well before they become palpable (and save lives). Mri is even more sensitive than a mammogram but is cost-prohibitive; in the right setting, it can be very effective. Self-examination is a bit less beneficial, but if done regularly, it can identify cancers that may otherwise be missed on mammography.
