It's October chika's and what a better way to start practicing your self breast exams and speaking to your doctors about your breast health.

Breast self awareness is the key to know your health risk, especially when it comes to early detection. Todas las mujeres tenemos differento cenos (Every woman has different breast) whether you are petite or curvy. Our breast come in different sizes such as A, B, C or D cups, but we all have one thing in common keeping our girlfriends healthy and beautiful.

Knowing your girls is also knowing your family history, signs and symptoms of breast cancer and how your lifestyle decision you make everyday can affect you in the long run as well as increase or decrease your risk.

So, the common questions asked is "Whats Normal?"

Keep in mind, what's normal to your friend may not be the same for you. There are various types of changes your breast may experience from physical appearance to feeling breast lumps. The key thing is to look for  breast changes that make your "tatas" look unusual in size, shape or color.

A way to keep track of your breast health is to keep a "Breast Diary" where you are able to track your own breast self exam and mark on your breast diagram any small to big changes. Remember, when you are doing your breast exams at home touch your breast tissue from multiple angles with varying pressure and cover areas such are underneath the armpit, close to collarbone and sternum.

If you notice changes withing your breast that persist for more than 2-3 weeks, make a clinic breast exam appointment with your provider.

*swelling, soreness or rash

*change in size or shape
*dimpling or puckering of skin
*Nipple discharge
