Be Breast Aware

My Weekly - - Health -

“Reg­u­larly ex­am­in­ing your own breasts can find a breast cancer early when it’s more likely to be treated suc­cess­fully,” says Pro­fes­sor Carlo Palmieri, breast cancer ex­pert at the Clat­ter­bridge Cancer Cen­tre. “About 20 per cent of cases are found this way so get into the habit of do­ing a breast self-ex­am­i­na­tion once a month to fa­mil­iarise your­self with how your breasts nor­mally look and feel. Check for lumps, dim­pled or puck­ered skin, nip­ple changes, such as in­ver­sion, dis­charge or a rash.”
