Our team will educate you on the basics of breast health and will be there to support you and your loved ones anytime you have a question or discover something that concerns you.

At CentraCare, We Recommend a Three-Part Approach to Breast Health:

  • Regular clinical exams by a health care professional
  • Monthly self-breast exams starting at age 18

Taking an active role in your breast health could save your life. Most breast cancer diagnosed at an early stage has a five-year survival rate of 97 percent. At CentraCare, our team will answer your questions and help you create a self-care plan built with your risk factors and medical needs in mind. We’re here to assist with all your breast care needs.

How to Perform a Self-Breast Exam

To perform a self-breast exam, stand in front of a mirror with your arms at your side. Raise one arm and feel around on your breast with your free hand. Keep an eye out for any discolorations or growths. When you’re done, raise the other arm and repeat with the other breast. Remember that both breasts will not necessarily feel the same — this is normal.
