| HOW TO DO A ‘PECS SELF-EXAMINATION’ (PSE):
PART A – LYING DOWN OR IN THE SHOWER

| 2. Press using light, medium and firm pressure in a circular motion, then follow an up and down pattern and then a wedge pattern (refer to diagrams A,B and C).
3. Feel for any changes in your pecs, above and below your collarbone and in your armpit area.
4. Repeat these steps in your left pec area.
1. Holding arms at sides.
