Be Breast Aware

Being ‘breast aware’ simply means getting to know how your breasts look and feel at different times, and telling your doctor straight away if you notice any unusual changes. Breast tissue changes as you get older, and every woman’s breasts are different. It is important that you continue to look at and check your breasts regularly, even if you have just had a mammogram.

It’s as simple as TLC...

TOUCH your breasts. Can you feel anything unusual?

LOOK for changes. Is there any change in shape or texture?

CHECK anything unusual with your doctor


  Lump - may not be seen but might be felt. Skin tethering such as dimpling or puckering. Appearance or direction of nipple. Nipple discharge. Rash or crusting.
