Data were collected by using structured questionnaire and analyzed by using chi square test with level of significance of ≤ 0,05. Results showed that perceived susceptibility had correlation with VIA examination (p=0,026), perceived seriousness had correlation with VIA examination (p=0,004), perceived benefits had correlation with VIA examination (p=0,016), perceived barriers had correlation with VIA examination (p=0,016), and cues to action (p=0,000) had correlation with VIA examination. It can be concluded that HBM has correlation with VIA examination and cues to action has the strongest variabel related to VIA examination.
