What Happens During a Breast Exam?

Once you are undressed from the waist up, your health care provider will examine your breasts for any possible signs of breast cancer or other breast problems. They will look at both breasts, paying close attention to your nipples, breast shape, size and skin texture. Then your health care provider will feel your breasts for any abnormal texture or lumps.
