Giving yourself a monthly self exam is a super simple self-care ritual. It’s recommended to conduct the exam at end of your monthly period. If you are pregnant, no longer have periods or your period is irregular, choose a specific day each month. If you find a lump or notice other unusual changes, don’t panic, just see your doc for further evaluation. About 80% of lumps found are not cancerous. It’s best to do your examination on dry skin without any balm or lotion. However once you complete this exercise you can give your breast’s a lovely little massage with SMOOTH body balm.
