Breast self-examination is a technique to potentially help with detection of certain breast cancers. Although, self-examination is a great technique, it is important to get a mammogram every year. Best practice informs that breast examinations should be performed after your period.

Here is a 5-step breast examination chart to guide you through the process.

  • Stand with your shoulders straightened and arms on your hips. Check that your breasts are their usual shape, size and color. Any changes in these, or change in nipple position should be shared with your doctor.
  • Raise your arms and look for the same changes as above. Also check for signs of fluid coming out of any or both of the nipples i.e. watery, milky or colored fluid or blood.
  • Lie down; use your left hand to feel your right breast and your right hand to feel your left breast. Use your first few fingers to feel your entire breast from your collarbone, to your armpit, cleavage and the top of your abdomen, covering the whole breast. You can also use an ‘up-down’ approach on all areas. Keep your fingers flat and together.
  • Repeat the same process while standing or sitting.
  • Place your thumb and forefinger on the tissue around the nipple. Look for any abnormal discharge.

If you notice any abnormalities, don’t panic but contact your doctor immediately
