Breast Self Exam (cont.)

Medical Author:
Medical Editor:

What if I find a lump or abnormality on my breast self-exam?

See your doctor if you find any abnormality or unexplained change in your breasts. Most breast lumps are benign (non-cancerous), but it is important to have your doctor evaluate any changes you observe during the breast self-exam.
