How To Do a Breast Self-Examination
Breast Cancer is one of the most common cancers and affects 1 in every 26 South African women. Early detection is key. Remember: it can happen to anyone. Follow theses steps to examine yourself at home.
With a raised arm, use the tips of your fingers with the help of a massage oil like Miracle Tissue Oil, to gently massage the breast by first stroking upwards, then in increasing circle around the breast towards the armpit and lastly in spiral-wedge shapes moving outwards to the armpit. Any sensitive areas, especially if accompanied by a lump, should be examined by your doctor immediately.
