Do you do breast self exams every month like you're supposed to? I kind of slack a lot, and I try to do it whenever I think about it, in the shower or whatever, but I'm not nearly as regular as I should be about it especially since there's a breast cancer in my family. It's so important, though, for early detection. I was told to start in my late teens just to be certain, and I always thought that seemed a bit much, but I'm reading more and more about women in their early 20's being diagnosed with breast cancer so it does make sense. How about you?

Actually i never believed that a woman as young as me can get any such things.I mean neither i have history of such lumps or cancer nor i had the age.But one day i noticed lumps in my braset along with a little pain while i was examining.Now it had gone but it had made me really careful to really have the self examination regualrly.
