This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Because breast cancer is the most common cancer among British women, and since the earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chance of beating it, it is really important to be breast aware.
Being breast aware simply means knowing what your breasts look and feel like normally, being on the lookout for any unusual changes and getting them checked out by your doctor.
The charity Breast Cancer Now have some helpful tips:
It’s as simple as TLC
TOUCH your breasts. Can you feel anything unusual?
LOOK for changes. Is there any change in shape or texture?
CHECK anything unusual with your doctor.
