Abstract

Introduction: Breast cancer is the most common malignant disease in women. Breast self-examination is the main preventive measure, because 95% of breast tumors are detected by women themselves using such method. Nurses are the health care professionals most closely related to patient education aimed at learning the correct way to carry out breast self-examination.
Purpose: To asses correct breast self-examination (BSE) performance after integrated preventive care (IPC).
Methods: Women attending PREVENIMSS for an IPC and receiving the BSE-demonstration activity.
Results: 500 women, 84 (17%) performed BSE correctly. Women correctly performing BSE had more education years (9.3+2.7 8.0+5.8 years, p = 0.001) and had more commonly received a BSE-demonstration activity from a nurse (59% vs 46%, p = 0.02).
Conclusions: In order to perform BSE correctly, BSE should preferentially be learned using a demonstration method with a nurse.
