FEEL YOURSELF UP!

This Pink October, we’re talking self exams. 40% of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump during a self exam. And considering how little time it can take (and the fact that doing it feels good for the most part!) it’s the least we could do for ourselves to ensure we stay hale and healthy. Here are the ways we can do it. 1. In the shower Some women find that the easiest way to check their breasts is when the skin is wet and slippery. So the next time you take a shower, spend that time you let the water run over you, or the time when you have your conditioner on to check for lumps. Use the pads of your fingers to check, moving in a circular pattern from the outside to the centre. And make sure to check both breasts once every month. 2. In front of a mirror Stand in front of your mirror and take a good look at your breasts with your arms over your head. Focus on looking for changes in contour or your nipples, swelling and dimpling. Rest your palms on your hips and press down to flex your chest muscles and look for any changes again. But remember, both breasts are likely to not look the same naturally, so your study should be based on a comparison over time. 3. While lying down Lay down on your back and place a pillow under your right shoulder. Lift your right hand over your head and use your left hand to feel for lumps. Squeeze the nipple gently to check for any discharge. Repeat once again on the other side. Regular self exams need to become part of our routine. Because as they say, prevention is better than cure
