Dr. Alex Mostovoy recommends women be proactive and get your hormone levels checked, eat better, exercise more, conduct breast self-exams, use breast Thermography to assess your risk, and don’t let fear stand in the way.

Dr. Christiane Northrup has a similar view on the fear of breast exams. Breast exams have historically not had a positive view – women conducting exams, “sweeping” the breasts in search of something sinister and if they skip the self exams, they may end up feeling guilty about it.
Instead of the fear-based self-exam, Dr. Northrup suggests conducting breast exams in a loving and conscious manner, and to surround them in a positive energy field. She adds that “examining your breasts in a spirit of fear simply increases the fear and is the opposite of what you need to create healthy breast tissue.”
