How to do a Breast Self-Examination

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month again and I hope that ladies of all ages examine your breasts from time to time, to notice any changes in breast tissue that could occur within 6 months or less.

N.B. For the standing Breast Self-Examination, this can be performed in the shower as well with warm soap and water.
