Self Breast Examination

Posted on 13 September Sunday, 2020

Although many of the guidelines for screening of breast cancer have removed self breast examination and clinical breast examination - low income countries still depend a lot on these modalities. Along with teaching the people how to do a proper breast examination - we need to give them a hands on training  about the various feel of breast- normal, before periods, with lump , with tumor etc.

Cancer Registry of St John's Medical College has developed a FEEL MODEL to teach people how to do a proper self breast examination.This is really making a big difference in the understanding of the concept of self breast examination amoung the general public.
