How to Properly Perform a Breast Self-Exam


Because breast cancer  is such a recurrent and common cancer, all sorts of prevention is advised. For starters, paying attention to your breasts to notice any changes that may show up is a great and necessary idea. The most important way that women (and men) can check for suspicious changes is by feeling the breasts using a quick and easy process called self-examination. Self-exams can happen anytime, anywhere, and only take a few minutes.

“But how do I do that?” you may ask. Dr. Lisa Cassileth shared this clip in 2014 to teach us all we need to know for correctly performing a breast self-exam. Watch while she takes you through the process step by step.
