Monthly Breast Exam Reminder

Monthly Breast Exam Reminder

Women often forget to perform a monthly breast self-examination. If your patient takes oral contraceptives, tell her to examine her breasts the day she starts a new pack of pills. This also ensures that the exam will be done during the first 2 weeks of the menstrual cycle, which is the optimal time for a breast examination.
