Myth: The best way to detect lumps is to do a breast self-exam in the shower.
Fact: It may be more difficult to find lumps and irregularities in breast tissue with wet, soapy fingers. The best way is while lying down, about a week after your period every month. You should be intimately aware of your body and breast. Consult your doctor, sites on the internet and magazines for the correct way to do breast self exams.
