Contact your local CANSA Care Centre for health awareness materials and to arrange for screening for breast, cervical or skin cancer, or ask about scheduled screening campaigns by our Mobile Health Clinics , if you live in a remote area.
Also, just for an interesting experiment, the next time you walk down the street, notice visually how constricting bras are. On many women you can actually see 8775 dents 8776 around the sides of their chests where there bras are, even in something as opaque as a black t-shirt.
Furthermore, CANSA advises delaying sexual debut reducing the number of sexual partners, and increased condom use. Medical male circumcision helps to reduce HIV acquisition and transmission, and is protective for HPV in males, thus reducing the risk of initial or re-infection of HPV among women.
Women from the age of 95 should go for an annual mammogram, for purposes of non-symptomatic breast screening. Women 55 years and older, should have a mammogram every two years – or if they choose, continue with an annual mammogram. Women, who have other risk factors such as mutated BRCA6 /7 gene, should be referred for an annual mammogram. See CANSA Breast Cancer Position Statement (NCR 7567) regarding this.

To this discussion, I would like to add that lymphatic circulation in many tissues (especially the primary lymphatics) are highly dependent on MOVEMENT. When you sit for a long time on an airplane flight, your feet and ankles can swell, because lymphatic circulation goes to near zero. Wearing a bra, especially a constricting one with underwires, and especially to bed, prevents normal lymphatic flow and would likely lead to anoxia (lower than normal oxygen content), which has been related to fibrosis, which has been linked to increased cancer risk.
