How to self-check your breasts
There's no right or wrong way to check your breasts. But it's important to know how your breasts usually look and feel.
That way, you can spot any changes quickly and report them to a GP.

Step 1: Examine Your Breasts in a Mirror With Hands on Hips Begin by looking at your breasts in the mirror with your shoulders straight and your arms on your hips. Here’s what you should look for: Breasts that are their usual size, shape, and color Breasts that are evenly shaped without visible distortion or swelling.

Step 2: Raise Arms and Examine Your Breasts Now, raise your arms and look for the same changes.


Step 3: Look for Signs of Breast Fluid While you’re at the mirror, look for any signs of fluid coming out of one or both nipples (this could be a watery, milky, or yellow fluid or blood).

Step 4: Feel for Breast Lumps While Lying Down Next, check for breast lumps or abnormalities by feeling your breasts while lying down, using your right hand to feel your left breast, and then your left hand to feel your right breast.
Use a firm, smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand, keeping the fingers flat and together.
Press down with your fingers and move them in a circular motion that’s about the size of a quarter (or an inch around). Cover the entire breast from top to bottom, side to side — from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage.


Step 5: Feel Your Breasts for Lumps While Standing or Sitting Finally, feel your breasts while you are standing or sitting. Many women find that the easiest way to feel their breasts is when their skin is wet and slippery, so they like to do this step in the shower. Cover your entire breast, using the same hand movements described in step 4.
