Uplift Women in Need

The past year has posed a challenge to just about everything, and breast cancer prevention is no exception. Although there were setbacks in screenings and early detection, we’re rising to the challenge together.

Continue the Fight

For the past 30 years, the National Breast Cancer Foundation has supported women by helping them get access to the education, screening, and support they need. This is our moment to rise up and do even more.

How to Self-Exam Your Breasts

40% of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump, so familiarizing yourself with how your breasts look and feel by regularly examining them is very important.

Check Every Month

Adult women of all ages are encouraged to perform breast self-exams at least once a month.

3 Finger Method

With the pad/flats of your 3 middle fingers, check the entire breast and armpit area pressing down with light, medium, and firm pressure. Check both breasts feeling for any lump, thickening, hardened knot, or any other breast changes. This should be performed while standing in the shower of laying on your back.

Check Your Breasts in the Mirror

Visually inspect your breasts with your arms at your sides and overhead. Look for any changes in the contour, any swelling, or dimpling of the skin, or changes in the nipples. Then rest your palms on your hips and press firmly to flex your chest muscles. Look for any dimpling, puckering, or changes, particularly on one side.

Education is Empowerment

Educating yourself and others is an important aspect of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We want to do our part by providing vital information for patients, caregivers, family members, and those looking to reduce their risk through educational videos and blogs.
