Learn how to do
Place one of your arms behind your head and use three fingers to make circular movements around the nipple. Pay attention to the reversal or the change in direction of the nipple, and any crusts.
Move back and forth from the collarbone to the breast. Feel for any changes in skin texture or lumps.
Place your arm at your side. Gently pinch the nipple several times to detect any bleeding, discharge or pain.
Repeat these steps on your other breast. Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself to see if your breasts have grown or changed shape.
