What is a breast self-exam?
A breast self-exam is a woman's examination of her own breasts. Breast
self-exams were formerly encouraged to help women detect breast cancer, but
experts and medical organizations do not agree about whether this is necessary
or helps save lives. Many women feel comfortable doing breast self-exams as a
way to monitor their own health.
