February Breast Check Reminder

Yes it is that time again. Breast checks for February due today. It is really important that you do this at least once a month. Best at the same time of the month - so you get to really know your breast and their inners. I have very lumpy breast so I find this a challenge. But with these regular checks I am familiar with them - I will know when a lump is not good. Don't forget to check the areas surrounding your breasts. This way you will know when something does not feel the same. Breast cancer does not always come in a sphere shape (a friend of mine made me feels hers - it felt just like a thicker long muscle going from her breast to under her arm pit) so it is important you know when something is different.

For ideas on how to check your breast look here.
