How to check your breasts for lumps

CLEO (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

1 Stand in front of a mir­ror and look for any vis­i­ble changes in your breasts and nip­ples. Turn slowly from side to side. Re­peat the process with your arms by your side, with your arms raised, and with your hands on your hips.

2 Lie down and place a pil­low un­der your shoul­der. Ex­tend your el­bow out and place that hand un­der your head.

3 With your op­po­site hand, use your in­dex, mid­dle, and ring fin­ger to ap­ply light, medium, and firm pres­sure on your breast.

4 Make sure to feel your un­der­arm too, start­ing from the hol­low of your armpit to your breast us­ing small cir­cu­lar mo­tions.

5 Re­peat for the other side.

Feel your breasts when you’re stand­ing up in the shower. Raise your arm 6 and, us­ing your free hand, feel around the en­tire breast area.
