Conducting Important Breast Screenings
Did you know that the American Cancer Society recommends a yearly mammogram for women over 40? Yearly screenings may not be your favorite thing to do, but they can greatly improve your chances of survival if any suspicious tumors are found. Tumors can often be seen discovered with a mammogram before they can even be felt.
You can receive a screening from many places, but one of the best places where you can get it done is your gynecologist’s office. Our board-certified Dr. John White is an experienced OB/GYN who cares about his patients in the Daytona Beach area. He takes his job as your personal health advocate seriously. He is very thorough with everything he does, including breast cancer screening and other important exams.
Annual Breast Exams Are Important
Starting in your 40s, you should receive a breast exam once a year. A doctor may recommend you use self-examination methods regularly as well if you have a genetic predisposition for breast cancer.
At our Daytona Beach facility, we offer convenient and easy screenings. These exams do not need to be uncomfortable, and our staff is informative and gentle during the procedure. We also take every opportunity to teach our patients about things they can do to maintain their health.
We Teach How to Do Self-Exams
The American Cancer Society recommends that women in their 20s and 30s should perform self-exams as a precautionary measure. Actually, any woman can perform this simple check that searches for lumps, thickening, or hardened knots.
You may not know how to effectively conduct this exam, and this is why we teach our patients how to do it. We are always here to answer any questions you have about our breast screenings or self-examinations.
Protect Yourself and Schedule an Exam
You are an important person to many people in this world. Take care of yourself and see an OB/GYN regularly, whether it is for a breast screening or a routine pap smear.
We are now accepting new patients. Contact us today to schedule an exam with our trusted doctor. We will find a time that works best for you.
