While mammograms can help you to detect cancer before you can feel a lump, breast self-exams help you to be familiar with how your breasts look and feel so you can alert your healthcare professional if there are any changes.
Forty percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump, so establishing a regular breast self-exam is very important.*
"As a breast cancer survivor of 2002, I found my breast cancer lump in my right breast and it felt like a round HARD KNOT. By doing a monthly self-exam it saved my life." - Diana Albritton, Knotty Girl Founder.
Thus came to fruition KNOTTY GIRL! With her rope and knot body, her mission is to educate and spread the importance of monthly breast self-exams and breast cancer awareness with everyone. She offers a VISUAL and an idea of what a lump might feel like. Round and hard like a knot!
