  • Just feel every inch of your boobies, push kinda hard and feel for irregularites, lumps...if you find one it doesn't necessarily mean it is something to be scared of, I had one that was benign...best thing to do is get a mammogram and when you do, the nurse will demonstrate how to do an exam.

  • I have a guide that is awesome. It hangs on your shower head and has the 12 months at the bottom. Each month that you do your exam you poke that month out. I'll give it to you next time I see you. I've used one for the last year and just got new ones for all the ladies in the family.
