Ok sister, we were all born with them, have a special love/hate relationship with them, and we certainly don’t want to loose them for lack of attention! I want to break it down for you so you really understand the importance of a self exam as it could………seriously save your beautiful life.
Do you ask yourself any of these questions?
- How often should you complete a Breast Self Exam (BSE)?
- Am I doing it correctly?
- How effective is a BSE and its role in early detection?
Did you know that finding a breast cancer tumor when it is smaller improves the chances of saving a breast and may reduce the need for chemotherapy? Don’t be embarrassed if you didn’t……at least you admit it and can do your part to preserve your precious pair.
It is important to remember that mammography is still the gold standard for early detection of breast cancer.
Many cancer organizations, including the American Cancer Society, recommend that every woman 40 or older should have a mammogram every year. Unfortunately mammography misses 10% of cancers, so it’s still important for all your gorgeous gals to have your breasts examined on a regular basis by your favorite doctor …….and perform monthly breast self-exams.
