Introduction: One of the methods of breast cancer screening is its self-examination. This study reviews the effect of education about breast self-examination on women’s knowledge, attitude and practice. Material and Methods: This clinical trial was conducted on 100 (50 cases, 50 controls) women who referred to health centers in NourAbadMamasani. The participants in the experimental group were trained during 3 sessions. The data gathering tool was a questionnaire consisting of four parts: personal details, and questions on knowledge, attitude and practice. The collected data were analyzed in SPSS software using T-test, ANOVA, Regression and Chi square. Results: The results of the study showed that education increased the women's awareness, attitude and performance of breast self-examination. The mean scores of awareness, attitude and performance significantly increased after the educational intervention in the experimental group (p=/001) as compared to the control group (p=0.309, p=0.233, p=0.489). Conclusion: There is a need that health care centers provide some educational courses on prevention and treatment of breast cancer for women in the appropriate time.
