Breast cancer awareness
Knowing what your breasts look and feel like, and checking them regularly, can help you detect when something's wrong. Find out what to look out for, including new lumps and changes in shape.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer to affect women, with just over 46,000 cases diagnosed in England in 2011. Around 260 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. The lifetime risk of any woman in England developing breast cancer is around 1 in 10.
Be breast aware
Detecting cancer early can mean that treatment is more effective. Knowing what your breasts normally feel like will help you to be aware of any abnormal changes.
