According to the mirror.co.uk, Ms. Browning posted her own personal story of finding her breast cancer lump on her Facebook account using the hashtag #laidbacklumps. She told her friends and family that when she did a self-exam standing up in the shower she couldn't feel the lump, it was only when she lay down on her bed to check again that she was aware something was wrong.
Ms. Browning is now advising all women to check their breasts standing up and while they're lying down. And official advice also indicates that women should check their breasts in both positions.
In order to correctly check your breasts while lying down, you should have your arms above your head and use the opposite hand to check each breast, working with the pads of your figures from the outside of the breast inwards.
