Breast examinations are life-saving preventative measures to prevent breast cancer.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. Getting your breast exam by our expert and comforting providers is one of the best ways to prevent breast cancer.
Ideally, you should schedule an annual preventive care exam, known as a well-woman exam at Garden OB/GYN in NYC, Queens, and Long Island. If you have chronic conditions, like polyps or endometriosis, your gynecologist may want to see you more regularly.
You should get your breast exam as frequently as your provider recommends.
There are a few things you can do to prepare for your breast exam at Garden OB/GYN, just to ensure you get the most out of your visit and to help your doctor better understand your health.
If you’re due for a Pap smear, try to schedule your appointment at NYC, Queens, and Long Island on a day when you’re not on your period because menstrual flow could affect your results. Or if you need a blood draw, you might need to fast for several hours beforehand, but you can ask the caring team at Garden OB/GYN ahead of time if this applies to you.
