Breast Cancer isn't a women's only thing. Men can develop it as well!


What Is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. The damaged cells can invade surrounding tissue, but with early detection and treatment, most people continue a normal life.




1 in 8 women will be diagnosed.
220,000 women in the US will be diagnosed this year. More than 40,000 of them, will die this year.
Estimated 2,150 men will be diagnosed and 410 will die this year.
It is the most common diagnosed cancer in women.
It is the second leading cause of death in women.
Two out of three women with invasive cancer are diagnosed after age 55.
Breast cancer is diagnosed more often in Caucasian women than women of other races.
Symptoms of breast cancer include a lump in the breast, bloody discharge from the nipple, and changes in the shape or texture of the nipple or breast. 
Also, cancer-related fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, or weight loss.





*How Should A Breast Self-Exam Be Performed?

1) In the Shower 

Using the pads of your fingers, move around your entire breast in a circular pattern moving from the outside to the center, checking the entire breast and armpit area. Check both breasts each month feeling for any lump, thickening, or hardened knot. Notice any changes and get lumps evaluated by your healthcare provider.

2) In Front of a Mirror 

Visually inspect your breasts with your arms at your sides. Next, raise your arms high overhead.

Look for any changes in the contour, any swelling, or dimpling of the skin, or changes in the nipples. Next, rest your palms on your hips and press firmly to flex your chest muscles. Left and right breasts will not exactly match—few women's breasts do, so look for any dimpling, puckering, or changes, particularly on one side.

3) Lying Down

When lying down, the breast tissue spreads out evenly along the chest wall. Place a pillow under your right shoulder and your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right breast gently in small circular motions covering the entire breast area and armpit.

Use light, medium, and firm pressure. Squeeze the nipple; check for discharge and lumps. Repeat these steps for your left breast.
