As hard as it might be to believe, men can get breast cancer, too.
Make it a monthly habit to check your breasts for any lumps, especially after age 40.
Self chec thinks it’s important for you to know what a breast self-check looks like and has included a written guide as well as a copy of the woman’s video breast check. It’s easier for a man to check his breasts than a woman. Try to get into the habit of touching each breast once a month at the same time you do your Testicular-Self check. Do this by using light, medium and firm pressure with the inner pads of your three middle fingers.
Quick Tip: If you have a history of breast cancer (female or male) in your family, ask your doctor about getting a mammogram.
