October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. When was the last time you performed a self-breast exam? Consult your doctor if you feel any of the following signs and symptoms:

  • nipple tenderness/lump/thickening near the breast area
  • unexplained change in the texture, size or shape of the breast
  • unexplained swelling or shrinkage of the breast
  • any nipple discharge (clear or bloody)

Of course, a SBE (self-breast exam) should not replace a clinical exam performed by your doctor. If you have family history of breast cancer, it’s a smart idea to have yourself checked early. Remember, early detection is key.
