Hi Nina

Thanks for your question! 

Every woman should do a self exam every month, even if there is no direct evidence that these exams save lives. But knowing what is normal for you can help if any changes occur. The faster a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, the better her odds of survival. 

We have a step-by-step tutorial on self-exams - take a look here, I think it'll help you a lot. Let us know what you think!
