Performing regular breast self-exams can help you become familiar with the individual characteristics of your breasts and enable you to recognize any changes or irregularities. If you notice any irregularities, see your doctor as soon as possible. Breast cancer that is diagnosed at an early stage is more likely to be treated successfully. If you are menstruating, perform the breast self-exam a few days to a week after menstruation, when breasts are usually less tender or swollen.
