Breast Cancer – 5 Point Plan to be Breast Aware


be breast aware over 50 imageEvery year 46,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. That’s one person every 11 minutes. 80% of breast cancers occur in women over 50.
The good news is that breast cancer survival rates are improving – probably as a result of improved treatment and earlier detection.

So how do I check my breasts?

There is no right or wrong way to check your breasts. Try to get used to looking and feeling your breasts regularly. Remember to check all parts of your breast, your armpits and up to your collarbone.

What changes should I look and feel  for?

•    Changes in size or shape

•    Changes in skin texture such as puckering or dimpling

•    Inverted nipple

•    A lump or thickening of breast tissue

•    Redness or a rash on the skin/around the nipple

•    Discharge from one or both nipples

•    Constant pain in breast or armpit

•    Swelling in armpit/around collarbone
