It’s simple, easy to keep and could save your life.

There’s no right or wrong way to check your breasts. It’s about looking and feeling regularly so any unusual changes can be spotted quickly.

Knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer can save lives. It’s not just a lump – other symptoms can include a nipple becoming inverted or a change in texture of the skin.
