Never let a change in your breast go unnoticed.
Perform this simple breast self-examination regularly.
Every month, one week after your period is the best time. If you're menopausal, check on the same day every month.
Stand in front of the mirror with your hands raised. Look for puckering, dimpling, redness or any changes in size or shape.
Using your fingers, rotate around the breast. Feel for lumps, thickening or bumps. Don't forget your armpit, as breast tissue also extends there.
Gently squeeze the nipple to check for any discharge, crusting or inversion.
