Self examination of the breast should be done in the following ways after periods are over. Women should examine their breasts every month.

  • Sit or stand in front of a mirror, with your arms relaxed at your sides, and examine your breasts carefully for any changes in size and shape. Look for any puckering or dimpling of the skin, and for any discharge or change in the nipples. Compare one breast with the other.
  • Raise both your arms over your head, and look for exactly the same changes. See if there is any change since you last examined your breasts.
  • You should feel for a lump or thickening in the breast tissues. Lie down on your bed, or on the floor. Put a pillow or a bath towel under your left shoulder, and place your left hand under your head. With the fingers of your right hand held together flat, press gently but firmly with small circular motions to feel the inner, upper quarter of your left breast, starting at your breast bone and going outward toward the nipple line. Also feel the areas around the nipple.
  • With the same gentle pressure next feel the lower, inner parts of your breast.
  • Now bring your left arm down to your side, and still using the flat part of your fingers, feel under your armpit.
  • Use the same gentle pressure to feel the upper, outer quarter of your breast from the nipple line to where your arm is resting.
  • And finally, feel the lower, outer section of your breast, proceeding from the outer part to the nipple.
  • Repeat the entire procedure, for the right breast.
