How to Complete A Self-Exam This Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means now is a better time than ever to start thinking about your health. With 1 in 8 women in the U.S. developing breast cancer, it remains one of the most common forms of cancer in women. BreastCancer.Org recommends that people with breasts perform a self-examination once a month, in addition to regular wellness exams. If you’ve never done one before or aren't sure about proper techniques, don’t fret. Walnut Lake OBGYN & Wellness has laid out all the steps! If you are in the West Bloomfield, MI area and need a checkup, contact Walnut Lake OBGYN & Wellness today. Why Is It Important? There is no one early detection test for breast cancer. Regular self-examination is one of the best ways to catch any abnormalities before receiving proper testing. In fact, between 2013 and 2018, the overall number of deaths related to breast cancer dropped by one percent each year due to earlier detection and advancements in treatments. Performing self-examinations regularly helps you recognize and understand your “normal.” Meaning that if any changes appear, you’ll be able to catch them right away. Who Should Self-Examine? Anyone with breasts! No matter your age ...
