Step 1: Lie down on your back with one hand behind your head. Use the pads of your three middle fingers from your opposite hand to examine each breast.
Step 2: Move your three fingers in dime sized circles. Do three circles in one spot, starting with light pressure, then medium and lastly use deeper pressure. Then “walk” your fingers to the next area – do not lift your fingers off your breast.
Step 3: Starting at your breast bone, work your way down your breast and back up in dime sized circles. Spend extra time in the armpit.
Step 4: Gently squeeze each nipple and look for discharge or pain.
Step 5: Call your doctor if you notice anything abnormal.
