How do breast self-examination
You must put yourself in the mirror to see your breasts. First magazine these with arms hanging freely and then press the waist hands. Finally raise them above the waist.
What do you observe for?
- That there is no difference between a breast / breast and another.
- That there are no alterations in breast size, shape and contour of each (corns, and calluses nipple retraction).
- You see if skin eczema, ulceration ....
- Do you have any change in your breasts, nipples or modification of one's skin?
Now lie, because with this position your muscles will be more relaxed and facilitate palpation of the breasts.
If you begin to examine your right breast must place a pillow under your right shoulder and you lift this right arm and place it behind the head at the level of the mouth.
Then, with your three middle fingers together and flat on your left hand, make concentric or spiral motion around your breast pressing gently and firmly with the fingertips in a circular motion at each point you're feeling. The movement should go from the periphery of the breast to the nipple and in the sense of clockwise.
Now it make vertical movements hand moving up and down covering the entire breast. Then make the moves quadrants, moving the hand from the nipple to the periphery of the breast and back to cover the entire breast.
Placed in the same position should palpate the corresponding side armpit. With this we will be discarding the appearance of a strange lump. Move your hand along the arm in a circular motion of the hand. The pressure you exert should be slightly higher than the previous year.
Continue in the same position for palpation of the nipple and areola. Press the nipple between thumb and index fingers. You should see if pressing there is any discharge. Then raise the nipple near the areola to see if you have good mobility.
If you have nodules or any discharge from your nipple, do not panic, because it can be a benign, but you see as soon as possible to consult the doctor for guidance on the steps to take.
As you can see in the video and the brief explanation, self-breast examination is a process that will take two minutes, tops. What are you waiting?
