Do You Do Monthly Self Breast Examination?

I don’t and I know I must. It could save my boops and my life. My excuse? Too busy. Yea, lame excuse. Healthy should come first. After talking to a friend who told me that a friend of hers was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, I started to do self breast examination again. Her friend was actually accompanying her mother to the hospital for consultation and while waiting for her mother’s turn, she decided to do a mammogram and then the cruel news was broken to her. She of course lost her breast and possibly her life. Effective next year when I turn 40, I should also go for a mammogram.

Do you do monthly self breast examination on your own? Or only when you go for your yearly pap smear test?

Do you do your yearly pap smear test?

I am ashamed to confess that being a health freak, I have however been a slacker with my health for the past few years. The last time I did a pap smear test was perhaps 2-3 years ago! During the coming school holidays, I MUST MUST MUST pay a visit to my fertility specialist cum gynae to have a pap smear test and ultrasound scan of my reproductive organs and breasts done. Having no time is no excuse anymore. 2-3 years is a long time. I should also perhaps get an anti-Cervical cancer jab. Cancer is not racist nor sexist. I really must spend a day of my time on my health.
