    Oh and also, when I got my lump checked out it was totally not a big deal, so you should go for it if you noticed something strange. I just asked my doctor, who looked at it and prodded it a little, then sent me for an ultrasound which was quick and painless. A little embarrassing, the whole procedure, but it was definitely a lot better than worrying about it for months/years on end, which I would definitely do.

    I do them sporadically but i freak myself out sometimes as do feel little lumps but think it may be tissue or a cyst or something .. I'm not stressing about it.

    I taught the man how to do them on me and what to look for since he always wants to play with them anyways... that makes it a lot more fun in a way

    I'm not hyper diligant though because nobody in my family history has EVER gotten breast cancer

    I used to do self-exams when I was younger and still developing. I didn't realize then that breasts may feel slightly different at different times of the month and one time decided that for sure I had cancer. I still do self-exams, although not on a routine schedule, just check now and then. I think it's better to know than not to know if there's something that you are worried about and in the meantime read up on the things you can do to lessen your chances of breast cancer.

    I do self exams frequently, since I had antecedents of death by that disease in my family, and my Mother is a breast cancer survivor.

    I also have mammogram screenings once a year.

    I share an office with a breast cancer survivor. She found a lump during a self-exam in her mid-30s, and it's a good thing she found it too. She's been through mastectomy, radiation, and chemo, all of which was better than dying of breast cancer.

    Do the exams, Dom.
