An important part in being aware of your breast health is making sure that you are performing regular breast self-examinations. While you’re in the shower or before bed, a few simple steps can be taken to check for breast abnormalities and to become familiar with your breasts so you can recognize breast problems should they occur. Your self-exam should occur a few days after your menstrual cycle ends to assure the breasts are not tender or swollen.
For more information about breast health and self-examinations, call 570-326-8200.
