Clinical breast exam: http://breastcancer.about.com/od/imagingandscreeningtests/p/cbe-exam-intro.htm the first part of your clinical breast exam is visual, just like your breast self-exam. Your doctor will look for symmetry, skin condition, and nipple position. Any abnormalities or changes from your previous exam will be noted. Changes in size, shape, color, or texture, or if you have nipple discharge.
