While there are no proven methods of preventing breast cancer, finding and treating it in its earliest stages can lead to survival. The three most important recommendations for early detection and survival of breast cancer are to do monthly self-breast exams, have annual physical exams by your health care provider, and do yearly mammograms starting at age 40.
