A 44-year-old member asked:

1 doctor answer
Dr. Mark Hoepfner answered
38 years experience General Surgery
Older: The older a woman becomes the risks of breast cancer can increase there are no early symptoms of breast cancer. Early breast cancers are only seen on mammogram and are too small to feel and cause no symptoms. Start yearly mammograms at age 40 and have yearly physical exams.
