Different perspectives to a context
But Nobraday is a selected day in a year where all females are advised not to wear bra in order to examine their health status especially the breast

3) while looking at the mirror ,look at any signs of fluid coming out of one or both nipples (this could be watery, milky or even a yellow fluid or blood)

4) After that , feel your breasts while lying down, using your right hand to feel your left breast and then your left hand to feel your right breast, use a firm , smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand, keeping the fingers flat and together use a circular motion , about a size of a quarter.

5) Cover the entire breast from top to bottom,side to side including your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage. Follow a pattern to be sure you covered the whole breast .
