Just a friendly reminder!

Here's a link in case you don't know how.


LOVE YOU LADIES!

The National Breast Cancer Foundation estimates that each year, over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 40,000 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. If detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer exceeds 96%. The National Cancer Institute and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend that women in their forties and older have mammograms every one to two years. A complete early detection plan also includes regular clinical breast examinations by a trained medical professional. Monthly breast self-exams are suggested in addition.

Have you done your monthly check or bi-yearly mammogram???pink ribbon

I've never done a self-breast exam...

I know, shame on me. But in my defense, my boobs are lumpy anyways. Lots of tissue in them, and now I'm pregnant so handling them hurts too much!

A self breast exam is about knowing what's normal for you. If you are "lumpy" then know what lumps are normal so if when there is something not normal you can get it checked out!

I'll have my husband do that tonight! ;o)

Only kidding... well, half kidding... i'll do it in the shower tonight and then he'll do one after that. Hahaha!!!

I actually have an app on my iphone for keeping track of my cycle and pregnancy, and on it, I get a reminder every month to do the exam.
