Early diagnosis strategies focus on providing timely access to cancer treatment by reducing barriers to care and/or improving access to effective diagnosis services. The goal is to increase the proportion of breast cancers identified at an early stage, allowing for more effective treatment to be used and reducing the risks of death from breast cancer.

Screening consists of testing women to identify cancers before any symptoms appear.

Various methods have been evaluated as breast cancer screening tools, including mammography, clinical breast exam and breast self-exam.
