The Importance of performing a Breast Self Exam

A regular self breast exam allows a women to become familiar with how her breasts normally look and feel. It can help her more readily detect any changes that may occur. Many women naturally have some lumpiness and differenced between the right and left breast. The key to the breast self-exam is to learn how to find changes in the breasts that persist over time.

While most women are aware of monthly breast self exams, many still do not know how to perform it properly. Performing a BSE incorrectly can be almost as bad as not doing the exam at all since it can give women a false sence of security. Please discuss any questions you may have about BSE techniques with your physician.
