Giving yourself breast examinations daily is important for early detection of breast cancer. I'll admit I haven't given myself one in a very long time. It's simple and easy to do. There's no wrong way of doing it so just find a technique that is comfortable for you.
One way to check both breasts is by moving your middle fingers in small circles from the outside of the breast to the nipple. As pictured, cover the surface of each breast, and also check the areas above and below the breasts, including the armpit.
Each whole breast.
