Breast Cancer Awareness month is not just to mark loved ones you may have lost to the disease, but also to send hope to those fighting it right now and celebrate those who have beaten it, as well as ensuring every woman is educated to know how to look after themselves.
Being breast aware is crucial and every woman MUST know their breasts and what is normal for them.
Advice from the fabulous charity Breast Cancer Care, is as follows:
How do I check my breasts?
There’s no right or wrong way to check your breasts. Try to get used to looking at 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?
Nobody knows your body like you do,so you’re the best person to notice any unusual changes.
- 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.
Be breast aware and wear pink this month as well as your pink ribbon to remind other ladies that they need to do the same.
