Monthly breast self-exams are one of the most important things any woman can do to help detect breast cancer early, but it can be a difficult habit to get into. This app will remind you when it’s time to do a breast self-exam and provide detailed instructions and visual guides on how to perform the exam. The app guides you to create self-exam schedule that works for you — in the shower or after exercising, for example — and then holds you to that schedule. You can also input notes after each exam so you can monitor any changes.
