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.
