Breast Self-Exam Shower Card:"This vibrant, full-color, 4 ½" x 10" waterproof card illustrates and describes the steps of breast self-examination (BSE) using African American graphics. A list of warning signs requiring further evaluation by a health professional and the three-step approach to breast health is also included. Monthly punch-out holes are included along the side of the card as a friendly reminder."


Breast Self Examination,, in English & Spanish:"Breast Self Examination or BSE takes just a few minutes, and you only need to do it once a month. If you are menstruating, perform BSE 7 to 10 days after the first day of your period, when your breasts are least tender. If you no longer menstruate, choose the same day each month-to remind your self to do BSE. As you do your examination, keep in mind that your goal is to become acquainted with how your breasts normally LOOK and FEEL. Your knowledge of your breast texture and appearance will increase the more you perform BSE."


Canadian Cancer Society: The Canadian Cancer Society is the largest volunteer organization in the country. We provide a balanced portfolio as the leader in cancer research funding, cancer prevention programs, public health advocacy and patient support initiatives.


National Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Celebrate Partnership 1997 - New York State Department of Health:"One of the most important things you can do for your health is to get to know your breasts. Breast Self Examination (BSE) is the way for you to notice any changes in your breasts, changes that could be signs of breast cancer. If you should notice an unusual lump, discharge or any other change during the month, whether or not you notice it during BSE, contact your doctor. The earlier the doctor can examine it, the better. Most lumps are not cancer but all changes that you find should be checked out."


Breast Cancer Treatment Guidelines for Patients, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN):"Since 1995, doctors have looked to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network for guidance on the highest quality, most effective advice on treating cancer. The Network has brought together experts from 17 of the nation’s leading cancer centers. After studying the research results on breast cancer treatment, a panel of these experts has agreed upon specific, state-of-the-art recommendations for treating women with the disease. (These guidelines do not address male breast cancer, which is much less common and is treated differently.) Every year the panel updates their recommendations based on advances in medical science."


Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization/Y-ME Organización Nacional de Cáncer de Mama:"Breast self examination, facts about breast cancer, three-point early detection program, when your partner has breast cancer, and more."
