Know Your Lemons Breast Exam App of Wonder by Corrine Jo Ellsworth Beaumont

Know Your Lemons Breast Exam App of Wonder by Corrine Jo Ellsworth Beaumont

We are doing breast self-exams all wrong…if we’re doing them at all. Our app fixes that by using Mona Lisa (or Napoleon if you fancy) to remind, guide and help you stay abreast of any changes and help you book your mammogram too. Because both men and women can get it, we’ve got everyone covered.

Know Your Lemons is a breast exam app unlike any other. Because we don’t just say “look for a lump” and “do an exam” but we tailor it completely to your risk, country’s screening recommendations and guide you through each question you might face. Here’s how it works:

Stop forgetting or fumbling through your self-exams. Our famous exam coaches, like Mona Lisa, talk you through a self-exam in an entertaining and informative way. Mona’s been doing it for 500 years, so she’s pretty good and nudges you each month at the prime time for self-exam (a few days after your period ends, or any day you pick if you’re post menopausal).

Know what to do when you find one of the 12 symptoms. We explain the difference between the good, and not so good, lumps. If you think you found one of the 12 signs of breast cancer—yep, there are 12—we’ll help you review your symptom and take the next step to get it checked out.
