We care for women at all stages of life. However, as always, prevention is the key. In her mid or late teens, but no later than twenty-one, every woman should have an annual well-women exam to screen for gynecological diseases. A well-woman exam serves as the foundation of health, wellness, and preventative care. These exams are instrumental to early detection of diseases and cancer, such as HPV (human papilloma virus).

During your well women’s exam, your physician will also conduct a breast exam. About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer; therefore, this exam is a crucial component of the yearly well woman exam. It should be done for women of all ages to look for any evidence of breast disease. However, for women who are 40 or older, we recommend that she has an annual mammogram in addition to breast exams. Because women over the age of 40 are more likely to get breast cancer, it is important that they combine monthly breast self-exam, annual clinical breast exam, and a mammogram. This greatly improves early detection and survival of breast cancer.

An obstetrician, gynecologist, or primary care physician performs the exam. Customarily, only the doctor and his or her nurse or medical assistant will be present during the examination.
Often, some women report discomfort; however, a pelvic exam should not be painful.
During a clinical breast exam, the physician checks your breasts’ appearance looking for changes in shape, skin texture, nipple discharge, and lumps. He or she uses the pad of his or her fingers to check your entire breast, collar bone and underarm. You will be asked to raise your arms in different positions, including over your head, let them hang by your sides, or press your hands against your hips allowing. This will allow your healthcare provider to look for differences in size or shape between your breasts. Additionally, your nipples may be checked to see if fluid is expressed when lightly squeezed.
The physician inspects the labia and vagina for estrogen effects, lesions or discharge. A speculum, a medical tool for investigating body cavities, is placed in the vagina to evaluate the upper vagina and cervix and to perform a Pap smear. The physician obtains cultures to screen for sexually transmitted diseases. An exam is then performed to examine the uterus and ovaries.
A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast used to check for breast cancer in women. There are two types of mammograms: a screening mammogram and a diagnostic mammogram. A screening mammograms usually involve two x-ray images, of each breast. The x-ray detects tumors that cannot be felt and microcalcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) which can sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer. A diagnostic mammogram checks for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom has been detected. A diagnostic mammogram can also be used to compare and evaluate changes of the breast from the original, screening mammogram. Also, a diagnostic mammogram makes unviewable breast tissue viewable such as the case with breast implants.
Besides a lump, signs of breast cancer can include breast pain, thickening of the skin of the breast, nipple discharge, or a change in breast size or shape.
