Please Note: Breast Examination – either by self, or a doctor – is seldom done correctly. The main problem being time – each breast should take 20 mins for a full and proper examnation, and yes, there will be a degree of pain and discomfort.
Most examinations are over in less than 5 mins – this isn’t good enough, and women need to know they have the right to request a comprehensive examination.
Thanks Gemmword for the update 6 years ago
One way of prevention is the self examination of the breasts.

How to Perform A Breast Self Exam6 years ago
I’m marking this done—I do it almost every time I shower now. 6 years ago
If I had a mirror in the shower, how could I do anything but look at my breasts? I’ll put this on my to-do list for this weekend. 6 years ago
What if I just tried to do this every single time I take a shower, instead of struggling to remember to do it once a month at the proper time? That way it would become a habit and I would probably do it without even thinking about it after a few weeks.
Now I get those email reminders, but I don’t usually read my email naked. And the next time I am naked, I have long forgotten the email. 6 years ago
Or else I’ll take part in the Breast Cancer walk to raise money for breast cancer research. The registration deadline is May 9th.
I’ve done this twice in the year since I made this goal. (That’s up from probably never for several years before that!) But a couple of times a year is not good enough! Breast cancer runs in my family, and I need to let go of the denial of my own mortality or whatever it is that’s stopping me from doing this.
Maybe I should do the Breast Cancer Walk anyway… but then what kind of consequence is it? 6 years ago
At the right time of the month this time. Now I’ll set my reminders to come monthly and when I see them I will OBEY. 7 years ago
in a state of partial undress… and suddenly I was reminded of all those reminder emails I’ve been ignoring for the last 6 months, telling me to do my BSE. (I guess they’re working!)
So I did it! For the first time in many years! It was a little anticlimactic, after all that melodramatic procrastinating. It wasn’t that bad. But I didn’t feel certain I would catch something if it was there. I know, I know, I need to do it regularly so I’ll know what’s normal, and then I’ll notice if I see something NOT normal. 7 years ago
I have yet to do it even once. 7 years ago
Here is the new text for my monthly auto-reminder on this goal:
My vibrant Flash,
It’s time to show yourself how much you love and treasure your health and your body and this precious life: it’s time to spend a few minutes of quality time with your breasts. You can do it!
