Detecting Breast Cancer at Home
If you would like to perform breast self-exam, here are a couple of tips you should do and look out for. This can be done in the shower, in front of the mirror, or also lying down. While in the shower, raise the same side of your arm as to your breast and use your other hand to press down with light to medium pressure. Check for both sides if there are any lumps, hardened knot, or any breast changes. In front of the mirror would be more visually checked, raising your arms overhead to check for any swelling, dimpling of the skin, or even changes on the nipple area. Your breast tissue is usually spread out evenly when lying down, so place a pillow below your shoulder and have that arm rest behind your head. With the same steps, feel for any lumps, discharge, or changes in the breasts.
