Timing Breast Cancer Self Examination
By Nabta Team
Timing your monthly breast exam with your menstrual cycle is important as well! Menstruating women should conduct their breast exam 7-10 days after their period has started. This is because a woman’s breasts are the least tender and lumpy during this time. Women who’ve reached menopause should choose a certain day of the month, mark it on their calendar, and stick to doing their breast self-exam of the month on that day.
