Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is the name for cancers that start in the breast. It is the most common cancer in the UK. Around 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK, including around 4,600 in Scotland. Breast cancer survival is improving, yet there are still around 1,000 UK women who die of breast cancer every month.
Breast cancer in men is rare, with around 350 men diagnosed each year in the UK. However, it’s still important that it is caught early and there are signs and symptoms that men can look out for.
What are the signs and symptoms of breast cancer?
Everyone’s breasts are different, and your breasts can change with age and at different times of the month. It’s important to get to know how your breasts normally look and feel so it will be easier to spot if there are any unusual changes for you.
If you do spot any unusual changes to your breasts, you should get them checked out by your doctor.
Finding out about breast cancer signs and symptoms can help you understand what breast changes to look out for.
Lumps are vital to look out for, and for many women the first sign or symptom of breast cancer is a lump in their breast. But many women have breast lumps and most of them are benign (not cancerous), and there are other important signs and symptoms too.
