SELF-EXAMINATION

Breast self-examination is a crucial practice for every woman. It helps in the early detection of breast cancer, which significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and survival.

By regularly examining their breasts, women can become familiar with their normal breast tissue and easily identify any changes or abnormalities. This empowers them to promptly report any concerns to their healthcare provider and seek further medical evaluation.

Breast self-examination is a simple and cost-effective method that can be performed at home, without the need for any specialized equipment. It allows women to take control of their own health and play an active role in the early detection of breast cancer. Therefore, it is important for every woman to incorporate breast self-examination into their regular healthcare routine.
