Breast cancer screening includes self palpation of both the breasts every three months to detect any palpable lump. A mammogram which is an x ray of the breast can also be done. Normally it is recommended after 40 years. If there is a strong family history of breast cancer then they are candidates for testing for a gene called BRCA. You can get many online videos for self breast examination.
