Breast Self-Exam: Look for dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin, a nipple that has changed position or become inverted, or any redness, soreness, rash, or swelling

Begin by looking at your breasts in the mirror with your shoulders straight and your arms on your hips.

Here's what you should look for:

  • Breasts that are their usual size, shape, and color.
  • Breasts that are evenly shaped without visible distortion or swelling.

If you see any of the following changes, bring them to your doctor's attention:

  • Dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin.
  • A nipple that has changed position or become inverted (pushed inward instead of sticking out).
  • Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling.
