About breast examination

Unfortunately, the development of cosmetics, technologies for creating instant foods, environmental factors, the growth of needs that reduce the time spent and many other factors of the modern lifestyle, lead to an increased risk of breast cancer or breast skin cells. We will not draw terrible pictures, but before discussing gymnastics at home for the breast, it is better to introduce into our lives a good habit of independently examining the breast.

How is this done?

It is recommended to conduct a self-examination after menstruation, the next day. Those who are not tormented by critical days, you can choose any day of the month, except 31).

Stand in front of the mirror, taking off our excess clothes. We play a mammologist, a person who is looking for something to complain about:
– shape? size?
– uneven swollen areas of skin?
– Elongated nipple?
– Uneven skin on the nipple: too hard or wet areas?
– chest discharge: yellowish, especially bloody?
– The size of the areola?
only you, conducting an examination, know what your breasts looked like a month ago, on the same day of the cycle, and can compare – compare. First, with your hands freely lowered, then raise your hands, bring them together, forming a lock with your fingers, raise your hands up and forward, looking in the mirror and watching the general shape of the chest.

For palpation (palpation), it is more convenient to lie down, putting something under the shoulder blades (for example, a pillow), the chest rises slightly higher – so it is more convenient. From the nipple in all directions along the lines of the glands, gently probe the skin and chest with the fingers of the opposite hand in search of seals, nodes, etc.

Palpate the area with the armpits and above the chest to the shoulders in search of something unusual in the lymphatic ducts located in this part of the body. It is believed that they are the first to show the appearance of neoplasms, which are palpable as not very hard peas.

With a slight squeeze in the areloa area, we check for any discharge from the nipples.

If there are any formations in the glands, lymph nodes, with discharge from the nipples, you need to contact a mammologist.Moreover, the examination of the breast, advertised everywhere, even in the soap series of the West, does not mean that changes or neoplasms that can be felt by evidence of a poor-quality tumor can be other options, for example, acute and chronic inflammatory diseases (mastitis, mastopathy, ) benign neoplasms.Before going to the mammologist there is no reason to panic!
Without examination, unfortunately, it may turn out that all your actions aimed at beauty and health and breast care, in particular, do not exclude the development of diseases that can develop quickly and imperceptibly, but notice them when the treatment is complex for a long time and removes a bunch of nerve cells.
