Don't rely too much on your doctor for screening. Most breast cancers are picked up by mammography or the patient herself. Relatively few are picked up by doctors and the ones that are are usually abnormal on imaging studies. IF YOU FEEL A LUMP - TELL THE DOCTOR. and do examine your own breasts at least monthly.

In brief: Easy

It is when you get a physical exam and, according to the findings, get a mammogram or other study to rule out breast disease, esp cancer.
