FAQ’s About The Breast Chek Kit Shirt

The Breast Chek Kit

Q. Why should I do a breast self exam?

A regular breast self-exam can help you know how your breasts normally look and feel, so you will notice any changes.

When you find a change, you should see your health care provider. Most breast cancer lumps are not cancerous according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, but only a health care provider can advise you for sure. Early detection of any lumps allows you to have more treatment options and a better chance of recovery. A breast self exam does not take the place of getting an annual mammogram.

Q. What am I looking for when I do a breast self-exam?

When you put on your E-Z Self Breast Chek Shirt, you are looking and feeling for a lump or any change that is different from the rest of your breast tissue. Because the shirt is form fitting and very sheer, your breast tissue is enhanced so any abnormalities can be seen right away. Then by following the diagram and rotating the fingers where the semi circles are located, you will feel if there are any lumps immediately.

If you find a lump or any other change in your breast during your exam and the other breast feels lumpy as well, this could be normal. As you get to know your breast by doing self-exams, you should be able to tell the difference between lumpiness and what may be different. As always, notify your physician when you find anything unusual.

Besides a lump or swelling, other changes could be; skin irritation or dimpling, nipple pain or nipple turning inward, redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast area, and a discharge other than breast milk are clear signs that you should notify your health care provider immediately.

Q. How Often Should I do a Breast Self Exam (BSE)?

If you no longer have a period, choose a time each month to do the breast self-exam. It is important to do your breast self-exam at the same time every month. The enclosed calender and place for dates and notes in your kit will help you keep track.

Women in their 20’s, and 30’s should have a clinical exam every 3 years.Women in their 40’s should have a mammogram annually.
