Both men and women are susceptible to developing breast cancer.
Performing self-exams are an imperative step in detecting breast cancer in its earliest stages. On top of going to your annual mammogram, performing a self-exam in the shower monthly, will allow you to get in tune with your body and pick up any irregularities. If you detect an irregularity, bump or lump it is critical to contact your medical professional immediately.
Place your left hand on hip and reach with right hand to feel in the left armpit. Repeat on the other side.
Feel for lumps above and below your collar bone.
Raise your left arm behind your head and use your fingers from the right hand to press gently into the left breast and nipple. Follow an up and down pattern, moving from just under your breast to the top of your collar bone.
Gentle squeeze your nipples to check for any bleeding or discharge.
If you detect something abnormal or out of place during your monthly self-exam, it is best to write down what exactly you felt and call a medical professional right away.
Your doctor can speak with you about next steps.
