  32. 32. Take Care of Your Body!• Cancer can take away your reproductive organs• It’s important to perform self checks and doctor’s exams – Breast Self-Exam – Pap Exams – Testicular Self-Exam Michelle Uetz © • 715-505-5342 •
  33. 33. Self-Breast Exam• Lie down and place your right arm behind your head. The exam is done while lying down, not standing up. This is because when lying down the breast tissue spreads evenly over the chest wall and is as thin as possible, making it much easier to feel all the breast tissue.• Use the finger pads of the 3 middle fingers on your left hand to feel for lumps in the right breast. Use overlapping dime-sized circular motions of the finger pads to feel the breast tissue.• Use 3 different levels of pressure to feel all the breast tissue. Light pressure is needed to feel the tissue closest to the skin; medium pressure to feel a little deeper; and firm pressure to feel the tissue closest to the chest and ribs. It is normal to feel a firm ridge in the lower curve of each breast, but you should tell your doctor if you feel anything else out of the ordinary. If youre not sure how hard to press, talk with your doctor or nurse. Use each pressure level to feel the breast tissue before moving on to the next spot.• Move around the breast in an up and down pattern starting at an imaginary line drawn straight down your side from the underarm and moving across the breast to the middle of the chest bone (sternum or breastbone). Be sure to check the entire breast area going down until you feel only ribs and up to the neck or collar bone (clavicle). Michelle Uetz © • 715-505-5342 •
  34. 34. Breast Self Exam Continued• There is some evidence to suggest that the up-and-down pattern (sometimes called the vertical pattern) is the most effective pattern for covering the entire breast, without missing any breast tissue.• Repeat the exam on your left breast, putting your left arm behind your head and using the finger pads of your right hand to do the exam.• While standing in front of a mirror with your hands pressing firmly down on your hips, look at your breasts for any changes of size, shape, contour, or dimpling, or redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin. (The pressing down on the hips position contracts the chest wall muscles and enhances any breast changes.)• Examine each underarm while sitting up or standing and with your arm only slightly raised so you can easily feel in this area. Raising your arm straight up tightens the tissue in this area and makes it harder to examine.• All information and images from: to_perform_a_breast_self_exam_5.asp Michelle Uetz © • 715-505-5342 •
  35. 35. PAP Exams• For Women• Every year at the Dr. beginning when you become sexually active• Looks for abnormal cervical cells that can cause cervical cancer• At a certain age and if you are monogamous(only one sexual partner) you canhave the exam every other year orup to every five years. – Listen to your Dr. Michelle Uetz © • 715-505-5342 •
  36. 36. Testicular Self-Exam• If possible, stand in front of a mirror. Check for any swelling on the scrotal skin.• Examine each testicle with both hands. Place the index and middle fingers under the testicle with the thumbs placed on top. Roll the testicle gently between the thumbs and fingers -- you shouldnt feel any pain when doing the exam. Dont be alarmed if one testicle seems slightly larger than the other, thats normal.• Find the epididymis, the soft, tubelike structure behind the testicle that collects and carries sperm. If you are familiar with this structure, you wont mistake it for a suspicious lump. Cancerous lumps usually are found on the sides of the testicle but can also show up on the front. Lumps on or attached to the epididymis are not cancerous.• If you find a lump on your testicle or any of the other signs of testicular cancer listed below, see a doctor, preferably a urologist, right away. The abnormality may not be cancer, but if it is testicular cancer, it will spread if it is not stopped by treatment. Even if it is something else like an infection, you are still going to need to see a doctor. Waiting and hoping will not fix anything. Please note that free floating lumps in the scrotum that are not attached in any way to a testicle are not testicular cancer. When in doubt, get it checked out - if only for peace of mind!

  38. 38. Alcohol, Drugs and Sex• Alcohol is a depressant – This means that it lowers your inhibitions (do something you normally wouldn’t) – This means you may not use birth control, like you normally would• Can make you forget• Leads to regret and poor self-esteem Michelle Uetz © • 715-505-5342 •
