Every body is different.
We're here to guide you with our breast tips to help make sure you’ve got everything you need to find your way:
Feel with the pads of your fingers, apply pressure and move in circular motions over the whole breast area, including beneath your breasts, your armpits and around your neck and collar bones.
Take a look in the mirror and visually examine your breasts from different angles, check their shape and size. Also look out for any changes to the skin texture.
Why not try checking whilst lying down? In this position, the breast tissue spreads out more evenly, and you may find it easier to check, especially if you have larger breasts.
Even moving your arms to different positions can help, holding your arm above your head or stretched out to the side of you.
- Lumps in the breast
- Lumps or swelling in the armpit
- Changes in tissue texture
- Dimpling of the skin
- A change in the shape and/or size of the breasts
A rash or swollen skin
- Pain or discomfort in the breast area
- Nipple discharge
- Inverting nipples
Think you may have found something that doesn’t feel normal?
Firstly, please don’t worry. The best thing you can do is share your experience with someone close to you and get yourself to your doctor for a quick check up and get their professional opinion. Early detection of anything out of the ordinary is the very reason we check our breasts, it could quite literally save your life.
