Coming together to help end breast cancer for all

The importance of self checking

It’s important to get to know your breasts. Check your breasts regularly and see your GP if you notice any changes.

Signs and symptoms of breast cancer include:

  • A lump or swelling in the breast, upper chest or armpit
  • A change to the skin, such as puckering or dimpling
  • A change in the colour of the breast – the breast may look red or inflamed
  • A nipple change, for example it has become pulled in (inverted)
  • Rash or crusting around the nipple
  • Unusual liquid (discharge) from either nipple
  • Changes in size or shape of the breast

There’s no special way to check your breasts and you do not need any training.

Checking your breasts is as easy as TLC:

  • Touch your breasts: can you feel anything new or unusual?
  • Look for changes: does anything look different to you?
  • Check any new or unusual changes with a GP

Everyone will have their own way of touching and looking for changes. Get used to checking regularly and be aware of anything that’s new or different for you.
