Since there is an overwhelming amount of information on breast cancer, Lonely recommends just three simple steps:
Get in the habit of checking your breasts in the shower each week. Soap and water can make it easier to detect lumps. Pressing firmly, move the pads of your fingers across the entire breast area and up into the armpit. A lump can often feel like a pea or marble trapped under the skin. However, there are many variations on this, and while most lumps aren’t cancer, it’s important to get a lump that’s still there after a couple of weeks checked by your doctor.
Keep an eye out for any other changes to your breast; an inverted nipple, discharge, dented, or puckering skin (or skin like orange peel) and a rash can also be signs of cancer. NB: It’s also possible to have these symptoms and not have cancer.
