The United States Preventative Service Task force has made a recommendation that there is insufficient evidence to show self breast exams are beneficial. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends breast self-awareness. This is where a woman should know her own body including her breasts, and should report any changes to her physician. This can be said for anything of concern anywhere on the body.

What is the Women's Health Initiative?
The Women's Health Initiative (WHI) was established in 1992 to address the most common causes of death, disability and impaired quality of life in postmenopausal women. These include cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis. It was a 15-year long prevention study. It included a randomized controlled clinical trial, observational study and study of communty approaches to developing healthful behaviors. The randomized controlled clinical trial looked at promising, but unproven, approaches to prevention: hormone therapy, dietary modification and calcium/vitamin D supplementation.
