About

Early breast cancer detection can save lives. ICanServe empowers women with hope, help and information to give them a fighting chance.

ICanServe is an advocacy group for early breast cancer detection through regular breast self-examination, clinical breast examination and mammography. It provides hope, help and information to women and men diagnosed with breast cancer.

1. At age 20, women should be familiar with their own breasts and conduct breast self examination (BSE) monthly.

2. At age 30, in addition to monthly BSE, women must submit to clinical breast examination by a qualified professional every year.

3. At age 40, in addition to monthly BSE and annual clinical breast examination, women must obtain a baseline mammogram.

4. After age 40, the mammogram may be done annually or as often as ordered by a physician for monitoring suspicious results.

5. Women with a family history of breast cancer may have their baseline mammogram done earlier, in consultation with their physician.
