Be Aware Blog Train

Sadly, 1 women in 9 will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
It is important to be breast aware and know what is normal for you. Being breast aware means becoming familiar with how your breasts look and feel, whatever your age.
Understand how your breasts may change at different times of the month (for example when you are on your period) and as you get older.

These are the changes to look for, and if you are in any doubt, see your doctor.

A lump or thickening which is different to the rest of the breast tissue

Continuous pain in one part of the breast or armpit

One breast becomes larger or lower

A nipple becomes inverted or changes shape or position

Skin changes including puckering or dimpling

Swelling under the armpit or around the collarbone

A rash on or around the nipple

Discharge from one or both nipples

Remember the breast awareness 5 point code:
Know what is normal for you
Look and feel
Know what changes to look for
Report any changes without delay
Attend routine breast screening if you are aged 50 and over

Remember, be aware!
