Self-Breast Examination

The following steps should be performed monthly. These simple steps can be followed to ensure good health. If you have any concerns after this exmaniation, promptly schedule an appointment to see your doctor.


1.) Raise an arm and place it behind your head. Using three to four fingers, press firmly and carefully on breast in a circular motion. Start on the outer edge and work your fingers in small circles to the center of the breast. Be thorough and make sure you covered the entire breast (even under the armpit).


2.) Next squeeze each nipple to look for any discharge.


3.) Steps one and two now need to be repeated lying down. Make sure your breast is flattened and repeat with each breast.
