Touch Yourself! Wonder Woman is doing it.

Forget “Think Pink”…

I’m going to go with “Touch Yourself” as my anthem for Breast Cancer Awareness month, all October long. And I think I have the support of some sexy female superheroes in saying that monthly self-breast exams are definitely a girl’s breast friend.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s pretty sick and tired of seeing the color pink absolutely everywhere every single year, throughout the whole month of October, designating support for BCA Month. For me, this pinkification goes hand-in-hand with the commodification of breast cancer awareness… with seemingly every company selling something pink “in honor of” the month. I won’t do justice to all that, but if you want to learn more, check out this article about it from the New York Times.

I’m absolutely not saying don’t donate to the cause. But be aware of the charity or organization to which you are giving your money, to make sure they are handling it responsibly and in the way that they promise.

I think it’s crucial to highlight breast cancer awareness (and not just one month a year, either), as well as to help encourage regular self-breast exams and routine annual breast exams, and mammograms, with your regular gynecologist / physician.

Prevention and early detection are key. If you feel or notice any unusual physical changes to the shape, color, or texture of your breasts and/or nipples, go and see your doctor right away.

No matter how big or small your breasts are, you need to check them. Whether or not you’ve had a history of breast cancer in your family, you need to be aware of the early warning signs of breast cancer. And if you do have a family history of breast cancer, you are at higher risk and you should definitely take even greater precautions with your health and annual mammograms.

I highly recommend Bra Doctor’s Blog for a plethora of articles about breast health, how to perform a breast exam on yourself, and much, much more information that you should know about your breasts.

Here’s a great article about how to perform a self breast exam.

Do you examine your breasts frequently enough?
