A breast self-exam is an inspection of your breasts that helps increase your breast awareness.
If you notice new breast changes, discuss these with your doctor. Though most breast changes detected during a self-exam for breast awareness have benign causes, some changes may signal something serious, such as breast cancer.
Here is How to do a Breast Exam
IN FRONT OF A MIRROR.
Examine your breast with hands down.
Examine breast and armpit with raised arm
Place your arms on your hips to engage the muscles.
IN THE SHOWER
Raise your left arm above your head
Examine your left breast with your right hand
Repeat the same procedure for the right breast.
ON THE BED
Place a pillow under your right shoulder and right hand behind your head
Press your left fingers pad on breast in a circular direction
Check your nipple switch to other breast from the start.
WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR
- If you feel any lumps or skin dimpling.
- Change in appearance
- A nipple that is slightly depressed inward (retracted)
Breast self-exam, or regularly examining your breasts on your own, can be an important way to find a breast cancer early, and it’s more likely to be treated successfully.
