Be Breast Aware

Being breast aware means being familiar with how your breasts look and feel, and being aware of how they change as you age and at different times of the month.  Being breast aware is about knowing your body and being aware of any changes that don't feel quite right.  Be aware and ask your provider if you're not sure. Ask your provider to schedule a well-woman exam or mammogram.

Changes to look for:

  • A lump or thickening which is different from the rest of your breast tissue
  • Continuous pain in one part of your breast or armpit
  • A nipple becomes inverted or changes position
  • Skin changes including puckering or dimpling
  • Swelling under the armpit or around the collarbone
  • A rash on or around the nipple
  • Discharge from the nipples

If you see or feel like something isn't quite right, please call your primary care provider or Women's Health Institute for an appointment.  575-758-5001.
