The data were evaluated using percentage, Kruskal Wallis test, t test and t test in dependent groups. The mean age of the students was 20.1±1.6.

Denizli ili Kredi ve Yurtlar Kurumu Yurdu’nda kalan 200 kız öğrenci örnekleme alınmış; veriler demografik soru formu ve “Meme Kanseri ve Kendi Kendine Meme Muayenesine İlişkin Bilgi Anketi” ile elde edilmiştir. Araştırmanın anketleri, Kasım 2005-Şubat 2006 tarihleri arasında iki kez uygulanmış, kurumdan resmi izin ve öğrencilerin sözlü katılım onayı alınmıştır. İlk soru formu uygulandıktan sonra, araştırmacılar tarafından hazırlanmış olan ve soru formunda sorulan soruların yanıtlarının olduğu KKMM broşürü kullanılarak öğrencilere eğitim verilmiştir.
