How should I examine my breasts?

Look at your breasts in a mirror, if you have one. Raise your arms over your head. Look for any change in the shape of your breasts, or any swelling or changes in the skin or nipple. Then put your arms at your sides and check your breasts again.

Lie down. Keeping your fingers flat, press your breast and feel for any lumps.

Be sure to touch every part of your breast. It helps to use the same pattern every month.
