Monthly if desired: The value of breast self exams (bse) in the early detection of breast cancer is not settled. Instead, a clinical breast exam (cbe) should be done by a health professional (e.g. Family physician) on a regular schedule such as every 3-6 months. If self exam is desired then the correct tchnique has to be practiced and verified by your doctor first. After that, a monthly bse can be done.
