Commit to Monthly Self-exams

  • The best time to do a self-exam is the week after your period ends.
  • Begin by standing in front of the mirror with your hands on your hips. Look for any unusual swelling or changes.
  • Raise your arms over your head and look for changes.
  • Lie down — or in the shower when your skin is more slippery — and use one of these techniques to check for lumps or other changes.
