"I did a self-exam and felt something different"

Betty Schneider did a breast self-exam and grew concerned, so she called her doctor. After several biopsies, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. "It was a very tough time for me," she says.

"Make sure you do self-exams, and don't take your health for granted"

That's Betty's advice. Detecting breast cancer early makes the disease easier to treat. If you're over 40, talk to your doctor about regular breast cancer screening mammograms.
