Thanks to our growing awareness and because many women are checking their breasts and seeking treatment sooner. More women are surviving breast cancer and going onto live full and vibrant lives. But... we know that many women are still not making regular checks, so read on and start today!
The earlier breast cancer is detected, the greater the chance of successful treatment and cure. Remember 9 out of 10 breast lumps are not cancerous!
Examine your breasts once a month, preferably immediately after the end of your period. If you do not have periods, on the same day each month. If you have any doubts, please consult your doctor.
Begin by facing a mirror or lying down... but see the guided instruction from Breast Cancer Now here
Did you know that men account for 1% of all breast cancers, that’s over 400 cases a year. As with women, it usually affects older men in the 60 – 70 age bracket, but it can be found in men of any age. The treatment is very similar to that for women.
