Early Detection saves lives…. It’s all about prevention been better than cure.
It cost little to stay safe… Never think of how much time you need to examine yourself.
Detecting breast 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.
However, not all changes are a sign of breast cancer. Some women have cysts or thickening of the breast tissue, which is normal.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) says that being breast aware means:
1.Knowing what’s normal for you looking at your breasts and feeling them
2.Knowing what changes to look for
3.Reporting any changes to your doctor without delay
4.Attending routine breast screening if you’re 50 or over
SIGNS OF BREAST CANCER
Be aware of the following changes in your breasts that could signal breast cancer:
1.Changes in the outline or shape of the breast.
2. Changes in the look or feel of the skin, such as puckering or dimpling
3. Any new lumps, thickening or bumpy areas in one breast or armpit, with or without pain, that differs from the same part of the other breast and armpit
4.Discharge from the nipple (may be blood stained)moist, red areas on the nipple that don’t heal easily
5.Any change in nipple position, such as being pulled in or pointing differently or a rash on or around the nipple
If you notice any of these changes, see your Family Doctor.
