Abstract: Breast cancer is the most common cancer and second leading cause of cancer death in women around the world. In Indian women, breast cancer is the second most common cancer. Breast Self - Examination have been promoted for many years as screening methods to diagnose Breast cancer at an early stage. The present study was conducted among Undergraduate students. Pre - experimental one group pre test post test design was used for this study. Then Computer Assisted Instruction administered to the subjects regarding Breast Self Examination for 30 mints. Result: Level of knowledge showed that majority of the subjects 54 (90) % had inadequate knowledge, 6 (10) %of the subjects had moderate knowledge, before Computer Assisted Instruction. Level of knowledge showed that majority of the subjects 31 (51.7) % had moderate knowledge, 29 (48.3) % subjects had adequate knowledge after computer assisted instruction. Level of attitude showed that majority of the subjects 48 (80) % had moderate attitude and 12 (20) % subjects had adequate attitude before computer assisted instruction whereas. Level of attitude showed that majority of the subjects 12 (20) % had moderate attitude, 48 (80) % subjects had adequate attitude after computer assisted instruction. The study revealed that there was a significant difference found (p<0.05) on knowledge and attitude. The mean pre test score of knowledge was 7.5, (+_2.06) and post test score was14.4, (+3.47). The mean pre test score of attitude was 49.2 (+7.22) and post test score was 62.3 (+7.29). There was a positive correlation found between the post test level of knowledge and attitude (r=0.97). The association between knowledge and attitude of students and demographic variables. Aim of Study: To assess the knowledge regarding Breast Self Examination among under graduate students. Objectives: Assess the level of Knowledge and Attitude regarding Breast Self - Examination among under graduate students before and after Computer Assisted Instruction, To evaluate the effectiveness of Computer Assisted Instruction on Knowledge and Attitude regarding Breast Self Examination among under graduate students., To correlate the post test level of Knowledge and Attitude of Computer Assisted Instruction regarding Breast Self Examination among under graduate students. To associate the post test level of knowledge and Attitude regarding Breast Self Examination with their selected demographic variables. Methodology: The present study is a Quantitative evaluative approach with pre - experimental one group pre test post test design. Total 60 Under Graduate students were selected Non Probability Convenience Sampling Technique. A Structured knowledge questionnaire and 5 point Likert scale interview method has been conducted. Descriptive statistical analysis was used for categorical data. Paired ?t? test was used to evaluate the effectiveness of Computer Assisted Instruction. Inferential statistics Karl Pearson correlation Coefficient was used to find out the relationship between the knowledge and attitude. Chi - square test was used to find out the association between the post test level of knowledge and attitude regarding Breast Self Examination. Result: Figure 1 showed that among the 60 subject?s, majority of the subjects 54 (90) % of the subjects had inadequate knowledge, 6 (10) %of the subjects had moderate knowledge, before Computer Assisted Instruction. Majority of the subjects 31 (51.7) % had moderate knowledge, 29 (48.3) %. Conclusion: The findings of the study conclude that the knowledge and attitude regarding Breast Self - Examination level of the under graduate students is high and it needs an intervention computer assisted instruction significantly increases knowledge and attitude regarding Breast Self - Examination.
