Abstract



Although breast self-examination (BSE) is a well known concept, its historical development is poorly appreciated. Therefore, this paper traces it to the 17th Century and shows that, in all probability, if the cure of breast cancer were to rest on a simple remedy, BSE would inherently become readily practised.
