Breast screening

Breast cancer awareness

  • Know what’s normal for you
  • Know what changes to look and feel for (see above)
  • Look and feel – check all parts of your breast, armpit and up to your collarbone
  • Make sure you examine your breasts once a month – set your day and remember it! It might be the date of your birthday or the first of the month.
  • Tell your GP about any changes straight away
  • Go for breast screening when invited
