In order to study the effect of health education intervention on women's concept and behavior of breast cancer screening, 600 women in urban and rural areas were investigated using a questionnaire. The subjects were randomly divided into experiment group and control group. The experiment group was given health education intervention related to breast cancer, and the control group was given health education intervention on common diseases except breast cancer. In the control group, the detection time was irregular, or no breast test was performed for more than one year. In the experimental group, after intervention, subjects underwent breast examination twice a year, and the patients with breast nodules were tested once every 3 months and 6 months. The results showed that the implementation of breast self-detection and breast clinical detection before health education intervention in the experiment group was increased and more regular, and the frequency was also increased. After health education unrelated to breast cancer, the implementation of breast self-detection and breast clinical detection in the control group increased, but it was not significant. It proves that this educational intervention model could help women improve their knowledge about early detection of breast cancer, and provide some help for improving women's prevention of breast cancer.
