    Breast Self-Exams

    A monthly breast self-exam (BSE) starting in your 20s is recommended so that you become familiar with what is normal for you. If you notice any changes in your breasts, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your physician.

    Step 1: Lying down
    • Feel for changes
    • Lie down on your back with a pillow under your right shoulder
    • Use the pads of the three middle fingers on your left hand to check your right breast
    • Press using light, medium and firm pressure in a circle without lifting your fingers off the skin
    • Follow an up and down pattern
    • Feel for changes in your breast, above and below your collarbone and in your armpit
    • Repeat on your left breast using your right hand
    • These steps may be repeated while bathing or showering using soapy hands
    Step 2: In front of a mirror
    • Look for changes
    • Hold arms at your side
    • Hold arms over your head
    • Press your hands on your hips and tighten your chest muscles
    • Bend forward with your hands on your hips
