Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between selected variables and the practice of breast self-examination (BSE), mammography, and professional breast examination (PBE). In addition, the relationship between the behaviors was examined using a probability sample of 322 women ages 35 and older. The women were contacted by telephone via random digit dialing, and data were collected through mailed questionnaires. Results supported a relationship between BSE and attitudinal variables of health motivation, social influence, susceptibility, barriers, confidence, and knowledge (R2 = 0.29). Additionally, the variables of knowledge, social influence, and health motivation related to compliance with mammography, and the variable of health motivation related to compliance with PBE.
