Why is it important to check yourself?
Breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the breast grow and divide in an uncontrolled way to eventually form a tumour (1). Sadly, every year in the UK around 56,000 women and around 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer (2). The good news is that inspiring charities like CoppaFeel! are working tirelessly to help people recognise any signs and symptoms to help them get an earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment.
So, how do you check yourself?
The ‘breast’ area isn’t just across your chest, the tissue actually goes from your ribcage right up to your collarbone and into your armpits. Remember, if you have recently lost a lot of weight on your exante plan, you may need to figure out what your new normal feels like to keep an eye out for any changes.
Don’t worry, we know that might sound overwhelming but, thanks to CoppaFeel!, we have some top tips:
1) Practice makes perfect
It might be difficult at first, but the more you check yourself, the easier it becomes.
2) Get familiar with what feels normal to you
‘Normal’ is different to everyone. Get to know what yours feels like.
If you’re not sure where to start, CoppaFeel!’s web app, the Self-Checkout, helps to guide you through your checking journey and can even offer knowledge to help you build your confidence.
