Breast health begins with a sense of what's normal for your breasts (breast awareness). To promote breast health, consider doing regular breast self-exams. With practice, you'll discover how your breasts vary in sensitivity and texture at different times during your menstrual cycle.

For many women, breast health includes concerns about breast lumps, breast pain or nipple discharge. Know what's normal — and when to consult your doctor. It's also important to understand common screening and diagnostic tests for breast health, such as clinical breast exams, mammograms and breast ultrasounds.

If you're thinking about breast augmentation or breast reduction, understand the surgical process — including who's a candidate for surgery, what to expect from the procedure and possible complications.
