Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

So if mammograms are up-to-date, lumps are less concerning but need a check if growing or you're worried ...Read more
