Feel Your Boobies

Know Your Normal

We’re NOT your mother’s breast cancer foundation and this is NOT another boring lecture on how do a breast self-exam. We thrive on empowering you to get to KNOW and understand YOUR body’s NORMAL by giving your girls some TLC. Follow these helpful tips…

Here’s the deal: Do it often. Make it a regular thing, like a routine self-care check-in. Our bodies can be full of changes – thanks to hormones doing their thing. So, don’t hesitate to give your boobies a feel – anytime, anywhere! The more you do it, the more in tune you’ll be with how things usually feel and you’ll sense if something’s funky. 

With that said there IS a better time to give them a feel. If you have a menstrual cycle, “feeling your boobies” at the end of menstruation is the BEST time of the month.  

We know you’re juggling a lot. Maybe you’re a busy student, working full time and climbing the ladder to your dream job, raising kiddos, or wrangling teens. No matter your stage in life, adding your “Boobie TLC” before or after one of your other daily routines makes it a quick task and forms an easy habit. Try it before or after you do your makeup, brush your teeth, or wash your face.

Touch

Use the pads of your fingers and press firmly on your boobies. Move in small circles around the entire breast. Next, feel around your collarbone, your neck and those sneaky armpits. Feel any lumps, thick skin, warmth, or swelling?

Look

Breast cancer looks and feels a little different for everyone. Keep a look out for puckers in the skin, nipple discharge, redness, hardening, darkening, change in the outline, size or shape of your boobies, rashes, and sores.

Check In

Check in with yourself each time. “Does everything look and feel like every other day?” Any pains that never seem to go away? Itchiness? Any major changes and it’s time to see a doctor.

Touch

Use the pads of your fingers and press firmly on your “boobie zone”—but that’s just the beginning! Explore higher territories – yep, above the “boobie zone”—around your collarbone, your neck and those sneaky armpits. 

Look

The thing is… breast cancer looks and feels a little differently in everyone. Keep a look out for lumps, skin thickening, puckers, inflammation, nipple discharge, redness, hardening, darkening, warmth, swelling, change in size or shape, itching, rashes, sores, and specific areas with pain that won’t go away.

Check In

Check in with yourself everyday. “Does everything look/feel like every other day?”

Found a Lump?

We’re proud of you for “feeling your boobies” and identifying that something might not be right. Always trust your gut.

1. Take a breath, finding a lump or noticing any other signs does not automatically mean you have breast cancer. In fact, most lumps are benign (not cancer!) BUT all lumps MUST be checked

2. Call your primary care provider or locate your nearest health center to schedule an appointment.

3. Be prepared to advocate for yourself. Push for your doctor to take your concerns seriously.
