How to check your breasts for lumps
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.
