When to make an Appointment?

Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast health is very important. True Harmony wants you to feel comfortable in your skin, and especially when doing an at home breast exam. It is important we as women are doing these often to ensure wellness. We want to cover with you a comparison of the good and bad signs of an at home breast exam. This will include when we believe you need to come in for an appointment.

If you feel you need an appointment, we are here!

OKAY: 

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT: 

  • If you feel a lump and it is smaller than your finger tips
  • You are able to move the lump around between fingers
  • If it is smooth
  • If the lumps are in both breasts
  • Last but not least, if the lump(s) come and go with your cycle
  • If the lump will not move or firm in place
  • If you are unable to move the mass between fingers
  • Discoloration, redness in color
  • Differing in texture (think: texture of orange peel) 
  • Bloody nipple discharge 

 

FOR OUR POSTPARTUM Patients, please note! Your body is going through a lot of changes after birth. Swelling and a little tenderness is very normal. You may also experience a clogged duct which is also normal. With this being said, we are firm believers in instinct, so if you're reading this and still get the feeling something is up, give the office a call and a member of our staff will be happy to assist.
