Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in the UK. The risk of breast cancer increases with age. Four out of five cases occur over the age of 50.
Be “Breast Aware” and follow the five point code:
Your breasts may feel different depending on the time of the month and your stage of life.
When you are familiar with the look and feel, you will be able to spot any unusual changes.
Check yourself in a way that is comfortable for you, perhaps in the bath or shower.
It is often women themselves who first notice their breast cancer. Most changes are not cancer, however it is very important to report anything unusual to your doctor.
