If there is an abnormal growth of cells in breast tissue that could be breast cancer, hard breast lump is really suspicious. Actually detecting cancer symptoms is not hard to do, but most women ignored it, the recommendation age for screening:
Women at age between 20: Self-breast examination every month, and the best time to do it is the fifth day after menstruation.
Women at age below 40: Go to clinical breast examination every three years.
Women at age above 40: Go to clinical breast examination and mammogram screening every year.
Women have family history about breast cancer: Go to clinical breast examination and mammogram or MRI screening every 6 months.
The mammography screening is the most common screening instead MRI Screening, which is an X-rays imaging to visualize breast tissues and detect mass of breast, the benefit is can check lump which not check on self-breast examination, sometime it fail to detect abnormality in a normal breast, for better result is recommended screening is MRI screening but more expensive than mammography screening.
