Got BOOBIES? (*_^)

In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, AliceWonders.com is launching a unconventional charity campaign named "GOT BOOBIES? (click here)". The core mission of the campaign is to remind young women (and men!) to conduct regular breast self examination nerdi.e. "check your boobies".


So here I would like to share the procedure and steps to perform a self-breast examination. Hope it will help you women out there.

How to Perform a Self-Breast Examination?

The 7 P’s of Breast Self Examination (BSE)

  1. Position: Inspect breasts visually and palpate in the mirror with arms at various positions. Then perform the examination lying down, first with a pillow under one shoulder, then with a pillow under the other shoulder, and finally lying flat.
  2. Perimeter: Examine the entire breast, including the nipple, the axillary tail that extends into the armpit, and nearby lymph nodes.
  3. Palpation: Palpate with the pads of the fingers, without lifting the fingers as they move across the breast.
  4. Pressure: First palpate with light pressure, then palpate with moderate pressure, and finally palpate with firm pressure.
  5. Pattern: There are several examination patterns, and each woman should use the one which is most comfortable for her. The vertical strip pattern involves moving the fingers up and down over the breast. The pie-wedge pattern starts at the nipple and moves outward. The circular pattern involves moving the fingers in concentric circles from the nipple outward. Don’t forget to palpate into the axilla.
  6. Practice: Practice the breast self-exam and become familiar with the feel of the breast tissue, so you can recognize changes. A health care practitioner can provide feedback on your method.
  7. Plan: Know what to do if you suspect a change in your breast tissue. Know your family history of breast cancer. Have mammography done as often as your health care provider recommends.

Do the self breast exam every month at the same time. Menstruating women should perform it a few days after their period. Women taking oral contraceptives should do the exam on the first day of starting a new pack of pills. I would also like to share this interesting entry (click here) regarding on the factor that contributes to cancer from the view of an Ustaz.
