Physical breast exam
Checking your breasts for lumps, thickening, skin changes, and nipple discharge is the best way to be vigilant about preventing breast cancer. You can do this exam at home in the shower, but doctors also recommend having breast checks performed by an expert as well.

What it is: Palpation of the breast and underarm area looking for lumps, dimpling, pain or tenderness, inflamed skin, and any other breast changes; also a nipple exam checking for discharge, crustiness, or blockage

When to start: Age 20

How often: Experts recommend home breast exams once a month; it's usually best to do them just after your period ends, when breasts aren't as tender or sore. Women over age 18 should have a doctor perform a breast exam once a year; this is usually done along with the pelvic examination.
