Breast Cancer Awareness Month: It's time for some TLC.
To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we've compiled some information explaining who is at risk, what to look out for and how to check for symptoms, including the golden rule: TLC - Touch, Look, Check.
Breast Cancer is the commonest cancer in women in the UK. It affects 1 in 7 women so it is likely you will know someone affected by it. It is commoner in women over the age of 50 (80%) who have been through the menopause but it can also affect very young women too, in their 20's.
And don't forget, 1% of breast cancers are in men – so if a man finds a lump behind the nipple – GET IT CHECKED OUT.
