Article Excerpts about Breast Self Exam

Regular self-examination familiarizes a woman to her breasts. Women learn what looks and feels normal for their breasts, and they are more likely to notice a change. Any changes should be reported to your doctor. Most breast lumps are not cancerous, but only a doctor can make the diagnosis. (Source: excerpt from Breast Self Exam: NWHIC)
