Abstract

Breast cancer is the main dead cause because of woman cancer. Breast cancer screening, especially breast self examination (BSE), can detect breast anomally, the sign and symptom of breast cancer. Detection in early stadium is able to decrease the mortality. Through this systematic review, researchers will assess the knowledge and practice of BSE on respondents. Search articles using PICOT in database; Ebscho, Science Direct, Elseiver, Sage Journals, Scopus, ProQuest, Pub Med, limited to the last 5 years; 2013 to 2018 catched 10 international journals and have been reviewed with systematic review of those. From ten reviewed journals, seven journals explain that the knowledge of breast cancer is quite low, but less than 50% do breast cancer screening (BSE) appropriately. However less than 50% do the breast cancer screening (BSE) appropriately. This systematic review, strongly, suggests that the giving of periodic health education is to increase the awareness for doing breast cancer screening.
