If you’re not sure how to check your breasts properly or what to look out for you’re not alone! Many women are unsure of how to self-examine so we have created a quick video guide to help you get In The Zone. Despite Lockdown restrictions every woman who feels a lump or change to her breast can contact her GP.
Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer among women in Northern Ireland. One in ten women in NI will develop breast cancer and treatment for early stage breast cancer can be more effective and less complicated than at later stages. It is vitally important to know the signs to look out for which is why regular self-examination is so important.
