A 37-year-old member asked:

how important is it for a woman to regularly examine here breasts for unnatural lumps?

Very: A woman knows her breasts better than anyone else, including of course her physician, and before the mammogram promotion, women who did self-exam as they should at the same time each month very seldom died of breast cancer. A dominant mass found needs a physician office visit. Call me old-fashioned, but i believe every woman needs to do this even today.
