Breast self-examination (BSE) should begin at age 20 and be performed monthly. The breast is usually easiest to examine on the days immediately following the menstrual cycle. BSE can be frustrating to patients, particularly when they have fibrocystic change because they are not certain what they are feeling or supposed to feel. The technique of BSE should be taught early and reinforced regularly. If a palpable tumor develops, women who regularly perform BSE present with tumors 1 cm or smaller more frequently than women who do not perform BSE. Improvement in survival from breast cancer has not been demonstrated, however. Some women should not practice BSE because of the psychological trauma they suffer from repetitive false-positive findings. Those women need to rely on their physician to do a breast examination once or twice a year. (Source: Science Direct Journals)
