Answer

As for all breast neoplasms, self-examination remains the most important initial detection mechanism for phyllodes tumors. Appropriate teaching of this procedure is vital for early detection of all breast neoplasms.

For patient education information, see the Women's Health Center and the Cancer Center, as well as Breast Cancer and Breast Self-Exam.
