Why do women get breast implants Do they get them for self esteem or do they get them for attention?

The Importance of Breast Examinations . Breast examination is a way in which early changes can be detected, as survival chances are excellent if cancers are detected early. Self-examination should be done monthly, just after a period. If you would like to learn how to do this, see the Web Link …to the left. This should not replace examination by a doctor, which should be done yearly for women over 40, and three-yearly before this. These checks may need to be more frequent if you have significant risk factors, so ask your doctor how often it should be performed. Self examination should also not replace mammograms as lumps can be easily missed while some types of cancer will not show up as a lump. (MORE)
\nWell look at this way, as long as you are an A cup, there will not be enough to sag and get droopy when you get older. Also, if you are an A cup you probably have a thin body frame which is also attractive to guys. If you are lean and only have an A cup your breasts are in proportion with the rest… of your body. An A cup is nothing to be ashamed of but I understand. If you ever start taking birth control, it will usually cause your breasts to grow a little bit, so you have that to look forward to if you ever use birth control. (But I suggest having more of a reason than wanting bigger breasts if you choose to get on birth control). Learn good posture and it will make your breasts appear to be larger than if you hunch your back over. Stand with your shoulders back and your chin up. A confident girl with smaller breasts is a lot more attractive to guys than an unconfident girl with small or big breasts! (MORE)

The best time for the exam is after your period, less tenderness and/or engorgement, do the exam approx. once a month, learn how they… feel so you will notice any changes. Perform the exam in the shower, you will be relaxed and the warm soapy water makes the exam easier. Watch for changes in the skin, such as dimpling. See if there is a nipple discharge, particularly if there is blood Begin at 12:00 on the breast using the opposite hand, make small circles with your fingers feeling for anything new or different under the skin, start at the nipple and work your way out to the edge of the breast. Next, do the same thing at 1:00, 2:00, etc, all the way around the breast. Then repeat on the opposite breast. Do not forget that the tail of the breast extends into the axilla or armpit, feel under your arm for any lumps, cysts, lymph nodes, etc. If you feel something new, chances are it is a cyst, but make an appointment for after your period to have your doctor check and make sure everything is okay.
