When to See a Doctor
Ask your primary care provider or gynecologist:

- How often you need a clinical breast examination (CBE), an exam your doctor performs
- Which breast screenings may be right for you based on your age and health
- Risk factors or symptoms you should be aware of
Breast Condition Symptoms
Make an appointment with your doctor if you experience any breast or nipple changes, such as:
- Breast pain, redness or warmth
- Breast lump
- Nipple or breast skin discoloration
