Check for breast cancer
How can I find breast cancer early?
The best way to find breast lumps that may be cancer is to do three things:
- Check regularly yourself.
- Have regular mammograms.
- Have your doctor check your breasts every year.
Doing all three gives you the best chance to find cancer as early as you can. Finding breast cancer early makes treatment much easier and more effective.
How often should I examine my breasts?
You can get used to how your breasts normally feel, so you're able to tell if a new lump has appeared but you don't need to do a breast self-exam every month. If you want to check your breasts, do the exam a few days after your period. Your breasts aren't so sore or as lumpy at this time. Check for irregularlities, and if there are any, inform your GP.
