Health Check Up
Breast self-examination (BSE)
A breast self-exam is a check-up you can do at home to look for changes or problems in the breast tissue.
This should be part of your monthly health care routine, and you should visit a doctor if experiencing changes or having breast pain. The best time to do is about 3 to 5 days after your period starts. Do it at the same time every month.
If you find a lump or notice other unusual changes: Don’t panic. About 80% of lumps found are not cancerous. See your doctor promptly for further evaluation.
