All Women should examine their breasts regularly to check what is normal for them and also to identify any changes quickly.

Being breast aware means knowing how your breasts look and feel normally so that you notice any change that might be unusual for you. Detecting a change early means that if cancer is diagnosed any treatment may well have a better outcome. Most breast changes will prove to be benign (non-cancerous) but you  should always report any concern to your GP.

Men too need to be aware of any changes in their breast tissue, as approximately 200 men in the UK get breast cancer each year.
