A New Approach to Monthly Breast Self-Exam

Has a breast self-exam ever been at the top of your to-do list?

It’s definitely not on my list, even though my doctor reminds me annually about the exam’s importance. Since there’s no family history of breast cancer, I choose to ignore that well-intended advice.

For the many women like me who skip those monthly breast self-exams, there’s a new approach called breast self-awareness.

It’s a better way for women to identify a change in their breast tissue. If the tissue feels different, check in with your doctor.

Below, Betsy Booth, oncology nurse navigator, Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano, explains the procedure.
