How to Do a
Breast Self Exam

To help in the fight against breast cancer, one picture is worth a thousand words.

Most medical experts agree that making informed decisions is the most important steps patients can take should they ever be diagnosed with the disease.

Tests, treatments and operations are somehow a lot easier to deal with if you can picture what lies ahead.

Photos and illustrations also help clearly explain the importance of prevention with step-by-step instructions for breast self examination, how to recognize early symptoms, or what a clinical exam at the doctor's office may entail.

Be warned that some of these pictures are not pretty. Breast cancer, especially in the later stages, can be a horrible disease and some of the pictures reflect that.

Delve deeper for images of mastectomy and other surgical procedures, chemotherapy or radiation treatments and their after-effects, with more on the benefits of breast reconstruction.

In addition, you'll also discover in words and pictures personal stories about how survivors & their families have successfully coped with breast cancer ...
