You know your breasts and all their little quirks (like how Leftie fills out your bra so much better than Rightie), so if you notice any changes to their normal appearance, pay attention, says Dr Debra Patt, a gynaecologist and breast cancer expert with Texas Oncology.

The goal of screening tests for breast cancer is to find the disease before it causes symptoms.

A 3-D mammogram exam is nearly identical to the traditional mammogram, and women will notice little difference in the procedure if they've had mammograms in the past. Limited resource settings with weak health systems where the majority of women are diagnosed in late stages should prioritize early diagnosis programmes based on awareness of early signs and symptoms and prompt referral to diagnosis and treatment. The technologist will position you, compress the breast and take images from different angles. Women at increased risk of breast cancer, for example with a strong family history, may be eligible for breast screening before turning 50.

According to WebMD, it's recommended that you get an exam every one to three years in your 20s, and every year when you reach 40. This is largely attributed to early detections and medical treatments that allow people to live longer with the disease.

Carson Tahoe Breast Center is actively enrolling healthy women ages 45 to 74, who are already planning to get routine mammograms, to participate in the clinical trial. Start with the right side, put the arm behind your head and, using your left hand, move your fingers - which should be flat and close together - around your right breast gently in a circular motion, starting at the outside and moving towards the centre. Some women — due to their family history, a genetic tendency, or certain other factors — should be screened with MRIs along with mammograms.

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ's chief executive Evangelia Henderson described the lack of funding for advanced breast cancer drugs as "heartless and cruel".
