Abstract
Breast self-examination (BSE) is a detection technique that is performed on a regular monthly basis by only 25% to 35% of American women. The incidence of breast cancer is steadily rising. Mammography not only fails to detect some cancers but is not available to many women. BSE is an important self-care technique that nurses should teach all female patients, regardless of the setting.
