What age do girls usually get their breast examined?

I’m trying to figure out something that has been bothering me for about 15 years. I got my breasts examined by a doctor when I was maybe 6 or 7 years old. No gloves or anything. My family doesn’t have a history of breast cancer and I developed normally throughout my childhood. From what I’ve seen, the bag is mixed, so I’d love to know other people’s experiences.

    Unless you were developing abnormal breast issue at such a young age, there would be no reason for them to be examined.

    As a child, on of your parent's would have been present and would be able to explain what the examination was actually for.
