Results showed that there was no significant difference in two groups [by using paired T test] [P<0.000] . After education,knowledge level in two groups was significant [P<0.01] but health beliefs and BSE times by using T student and Krasskul wallis were not significant Conclusion: research findings indicated that education in both methods increased the knowledge but it had no effect on health and the times of breast self-examination.
