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?
