Breast self-exam is an option for women starting in their 20s. Women should report any changes in how their breasts look or feel to a doctor or nurse right away.

The most important thing is to see a doctor right away if you notice any of these changes:

  • A lump or swelling
  • Skin irritation or dimpling
  • Nipple pain or the nipple turning inward
  • Redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin
  • A discharge other than breast milk
