Yes! It's the simplest and most effective way to monitor your breast health and detect any changes or abnormalities. And it's really easy too - all you need to do is set aside a little time once a month to do the exam, preferably a week after your menstrual cycle when your breasts are less tender and swollen. 

 

If anything looks or feels out of the ordinary, like a lump or skin irregularities, it's important to see your healthcare provider right away. Don't worry - in most cases these changes are not due to cancer, but it's always safer to be proactive and get them checked out.
