Why and how TO SELF-CHECK
Did you know that 43% of breast cancer is found by women through self-checking? Join the 56% of women who regularly check their breasts themselves as a part of their routine; it only takes a few minutes every month to detect any early signs of breast cancer. The more often you examine your breasts, you will become more familiar with yourself and be able to recognize any changes in your breasts more easily.
