We encourage everyone (especially breast owners) to please watch. Intently. The UK's Channel 4's fantastic program Embarrassing Bodies is serving up lifesaving health advice. This segment does not sacrifice any details (nipple shots, etc.) to accommodate conventional prudes or censorship. We do not intend to either.
The key to breast health is the self exam. While to many of us boobies are simply cherries on the sundae of life, their well-being is integral to our health (men get breast cancer, too).
The CDC calls breast cancer the 6th leading cause of death in women. According to the American Cancer Society 1 in 8 women in the US will develop an invasive form of breast cancer sometime in their life. The only tool modern medicine has to beat cancer is early detection. So, start feeling your boobies. Seriously.
If you find something, contact your physician. Don't panic. 80% of lumps are benign, not cancer and relatively harmless.
Breast health shouldn't be embarrassing. Make it a regular part of your life and make it fun (exams can be a partner exercise).
