How often do you screen your breast?

      Often. I found a small lump a couple weeks ago as a result. Couldn't feel it unless my arm was a certain way. Now for tests to see what it it is.

      I keep checking but I don’t have any😩 Sorry, bad humor 😅 but it’s super important to get checked at the least annually and get the proper vaccines to protect from breast cancer! Stay safe my lady friends🥺

        @KratomEater Men check as well! It can happen to men as well.

      I self check every month or so but I've never had an actual check at the Dr

      Usually whenever they tell me to. Like if I go to OBGYN.

      I am a 40-year-old male. I haven’t noticed anything yet. You know we got to keep an eye on it also. It’s not just a one gender street.

      I avoid acknowledging that they're there as much as possible...

      Self exam every month after my period. Doctor gives one every 2 years with pap. I have a script to get a mammogram but not looking forward to that.

      I haven't ever, but they'll be lobbed off probably within the next 5 years so here's hoping

      Every time I tried to make an appt with the VA they told me oh they moved the age back. I'm 35 and have never had a mammogram.

      Never done it... Still deciding if I wanna keep them or not...

        @Something_Strange 😅 same I hate having boobs. But we should still check because breast cancer can metastasize and spread to other parts of the body

    • Sweetpea94

      503d

      Not at all

    • Officialishness

      Self check every week to help the anxiety of being higher risk 👍

    • Captain_Honey

      504d

      Never. I doubt I ever will due to money and the fear

      I'm in Medicaid and had one mammogram. Knowing I was on Medicaid, the clinic ran some test that wasn't covered and charged me over $300! I'm on Medicaid because I'm broke, I don't have that kind of money. I haven't had a mammogram since.

    • Jewelicorn

      A few self checks, but no doctor visits.

    • SalineTurnip

      507d

      I've done self checks a couple of times but I've never had a mammogram.

    • Something_Strange

      Never done it before...

    • Kittypop

      Annually, my doctor does it. I leave that to the professionals

    • Belugabear

      Not nearly often enough, but I made an educational infographic on how to do it if anyone doesn’t know where to get started :)

    • bunniigutz

    • Kris_TheDumbo

      Never, and I hopefully never will

    • AriEden

      543d

      there's so much bumpiness in there naturally that I've just stopped checking

      • angel715

        490d

        @AriEden that's how I feel too.. like I can't tell what normal and what's not

      I learned self breast exam back in high school. Good thing i did. I had my first breast cancer at 36. I found that first one. It was very close to my lymph nodes. Mammograms back then werent very good (yes, dense breasts limited and they were limited on narrow span). Anyway, good thing i found it because it took mammogram about 5 tries to find it. My 2nd breast cancer in 2020, this time the mammogram found traces of the cancer even before it formed a tumor, literally a stage 0. They are amazingly better now.

      I just had my first one, and it was not near as bad as expected.

    • Noella

      Every 2 years. In fact this year I went and they want to redo it. I’m scared to death ☠️

      • Nickichina

        547d

        @Noella Try not to be too scared, just yet. I had to have mine redone because my breast were too dense to see through. Sometimes there just being extra thorough. Don’t worry until they tell you to worry. Xoxoxo
