How to check your breasts
Please still see a doctor, this is just something extra you should do one a regular basis. Tips from Breast Cancer Awareness Arabia
Facing a mirror, follow the four steps below:
- With your arms at your sides
- With your arms overhead
- With your hands on hips – press firmly to flex your chest muscles
- Bend forward – inspect your breasts
In these positions, your pectoral muscles are contracted, and a subtle dimpling of the skin may appear if a growing tumor has affected a ligament.
