How to Check
There is no right or wrong way to check your chest but it’s important to know how your breasts usually look and feel. That way, you can spot any changes quickly.
All breasts are different so it’s important to get to know yours and what is normal for you.
Look at your breasts and feel each breast and armpit, all the way up to your collarbone.
You may find it easiest to do this in the shower or bath, by running a soapy hand over each breast and up under each armpit.
You can also look at your breasts in the mirror. Look with your arms by your side and also with them raised.
For more help as well as a guided video, be sure to check out the this page on CoppaFeel!
CoppaFeel! also offer an incredible self checkout onsite which will walk you through the steps in detail and help you get to know what is normal for you. This way, you’ll be able to notice any changes much easier.
To check regularly, once a month would be great to ensure you notice any changes early.
Know what is normal for you. This will come from regularly checking, once you are aware of how things normally are you’ll notice anything different much easier.
Look and feel. Many of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer are changes you would only notice by looking at the appearance of your boobs. Make sure to take a good look whilst carrying out your monthly check.
Ensure you are checking your collarbones and armpits too!
If in doubt, get it checked by a professional.
Finally, get yourself clued up on the signs of breast cancer. You can read more about them here.
