Abstract

Breast Self-Eximination is important for deaf women since it is expected that the self-eximination improve their understanding and abilities to prevent them from suffering the Breast Cancer. This reseacrh aims at finding out deaf women’s knowledge and attitudes toward the breast self-examination as an eraly detection of Breast Cancer at GERKATIN, Padang. The design of this research was descriptive quantitative. The samples were 20 deaf women and they were chosen by using the Purposive Sampling technique. Data were obtained from questionnaires. They were analysed by using the SPSS Program. The research result show that in term of knowledge, 25% of the samples were ini the good category. Meanwhile, 50% of them were ini the fair category and 25% other were ini the poor category. In term of attitudes, 40% of the samples had positive attitudes toward the breast self-eximination. However, 60% of them had negative attitudes toward it. Thus, it is expected to the GERKATIN community to hold training to the respondents with health practitioners or doctors about the self-eximination. The trainings eventually improve their knowledge about BSE (Breast Self-Eximination).
