A breast self-exam is an examination that you do of your breasts. It is a way for you to notice any changes, lumps, or abnormalities in your breasts.

The American Cancer Society recommends that all women over the age of 20 do a breast self-exam once a month. Between the ages of 20-39, a woman should have a clinical breast exam every 3 years. After age 40, a woman should have a clinical breast exam with a screening mammogram every year.

Do your breast self-exam every month, 2 or 3 days after your period. If you do not have regular periods, pick a day that you can remember (like the first day of each month) to do your breast self-exam.

Standing Examination 1. Check the upper and outer part of the right breast and the right armpit as well. 2. Feel the tissue by pressing your fingers in small overlapping areas the size of a dime. To be sure to cover your whole breast, take your time, and follow a definite pattern, such as vertical lines, a continuous circle, or a wedge pattern. 3. Gently squeeze each nipple and look for discharge. 4. Press your hands firmly on your hips and bend slightly toward the mirror as you pull your shoulders and elbows forward. Look to see if there is any change in the shape or contour of your breasts. 5. Raise your right arm. Use the pads of the fingers of your left hand to check the right breast and the surrounding area firmly, carefully, and thoroughly. You may want to use lotion or powder to help your fingers glide easily over the skin. Feel for any lump or mass under the skin. 6. Repeat the exam on your left breast, using the finger pads of the right hand. 7. Stand in front of a mirror so that you can see both of your breasts clearly. Check each breast for anything unusual. Check the skin for puckering, dimpling, or scaliness. Look for a discharge from the nipples. 8. Watching closely in the mirror, clasp your hands behind your head and press your elbows forward. Look to see if there is any change in the shape or contour of your breasts.

Lying Down Examination 1. Lie down with a pillow under your right shoulder and place your right arm behind your head. 2. Move around the breast in a continuous circle, vertical lines, or a wedge pattern. Be sure to do it the same way each month. Check the entire breast. 3. Press firmly enough to know how your breast feels. A firm ridge in the lower curve of each breast is normal. 4. Repeat the exam on your left breast, using the finger pads of the right hand. 5. Use the finger pads of the three middle fingers on your left hand to feel for lumps in your breast. If you notice any changes, lumps, or other abnormalities, see your doctor right away.
