Tips for women’s breast health include:
- Practice monthly self breast exams. Gently massage the breast tissue looking for small, hard lumps that weren’t there the month before. If you find anything unusual, schedule a follow up with your doctor immediately.
- Visit your doctor regularly. Make sure to schedule your annual visit to the gynecologist for your regular check-up to complete your yearly pap smear and have a more thorough breast exam performed by your doctor.
- Embrace the mammogram. Don’t put it off, don’t be afraid. When it is your time for the mammogram, embrace it. There is no fooling, it will pinch, it will be uncomfortable, but it will be a lot quicker than you might expect and any discomfort will go away quickly.
