Breast Cancer Awareness

If you are looking for information about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and being breast aware, please see Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s website:

Being breast aware simply means knowing what your breasts look and feel like normally, being on the lookout for any unusual changes and getting them checked out by your doctor.   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.
