3Bs of Breast Health

3Bs of breast health

The three Bs of breast health include:  be healthy, be breast aware and be informed.            

  • Being healthy includes living in a healthy way to decrease your risk of breast cancer
  • Being aware means looking at your breasts, touching them and knowing how they change each month around the time of your menstrual period (monthly bleeding), when pregnant, while breastfeeding and as you get older. If you know how your breasts usually look, you are more likely to see any changes that are not normal for you. Being aware also includes knowing what increases the risk of breast cancer and how to lower your own risk
  • Being informed means knowing where to get information.  Talk to your health care provider (public health nurse, doctor etc.) about your breast health, your risks, breast screening recommendations and breast cancer.  Being informed helps you make healthy choices about your breast health.
