How To Check If Your Boobs Are Healthy

This morning I was in the shower and was just soaping up as usual. I was scrubbing under my left arm and sort of bumped my boob, which shouldn’t have hurt as much as it did. Anytime you hit your boobs, it’s going to be a little uncomfortable but this was pain that was not supposed to be there. So I did a self-exam and felt something new.

Obviously, finding something that could be a lump will make you uneasy. Instead of freaking out and diagnosing myself on Web MD, I am trying to stay calm and not think about it. I am going to my doctor in a week anyway and will get it checked out. According to Bright Pink, “80% of breast lumps are not cancerous” so here’s hoping that this is just something pesky that I don’t need to worry about.

I’ll keep you posted, but I wanted to pass along some information on how to know if your boobs are healthy and what you need to be looking out for.
