This Is How You Should Be Doing Breast Self-Exams

We oftentimes neglect checking our breasts, reserving it for the occasional annual physical exam or check-up with your family doctor. But did you know that the very simple, basic thing you should be doing (apart from keeping your overall health in check) is performing your own breast exam at home? Busyness should not be an excuse, because each and every one of us carves out time to shower daily—the perfect time to do it. Let's help prevent this killer disease by being self-aware in this sense, and putting in the effort to get to know our bodies way more than we do.
