Self Breast Exam
Self breast exam is the personal choice of a woman as it is not compulsory, but doing it on regular basis is so beneficial for women as it tells a woman how her breasts look and feel normally because a woman can detect abnormal changes only when she knows clearly what is normal and what is abnormal for her.
Self breast exam can be performed by a woman anytime when she feels comfortable like while taking bath or in the room before a mirror or while taking rest in bed. Women should make sure that she has checked the whole breast and no part are left unchecked because if the self inspection is not done effectively and some of the parts are left unchecked there is no use of doing it and women have intricate structure of breast so it takes some time to become familiar with this part of the body.
