Hope you’re all well and getting used to the cold and rainy weather!
Every October, people all over the world spread awareness for breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women , with one woman in the UK being diagnosed every ten minutes.
Did you know BAME women attend less breast screenings due to not knowing the signs of breast cancer?
Whatever time of the year, Cancer Education UK is here to help spread support and knowledge about breast cancer.
No breast is typical. What is normal for you may not be normal for another woman.
There’s a good chance of recovery if it’s detected at an early stage.
For this reason, it’s vital that women check and feel their breasts regularly for any changes.
In rare cases, men can also have breast cancer. Find out more about breast cancer in men.
Not all breast lumps are cancerous, but it’s best to have them checked by a doctor right away.
