Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Saturday, October 14th, 2017 by morethan

At More Than Mobility we are big supporters of the Breast Cancer Care charitybreast cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Month which takes place every October.

Around 5,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this month and up to 60,000 this year.  However more people than ever are surviving (especially if it is caught early), but the reality is that someone is diagnosed every 10 minutes in the UK.  Therefore we recommend all women to check their breast regularly for any signs or symptoms.

Know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer

Signs and symptoms of breast cancer can include:

  • a change in size or shape
  • a lump or area that feels thicker than the rest of the breast
  • a change in skin texture such as puckering or dimpling (like the skin of an orange)
  • redness or rash on the skin and/or around the nipple
  • your nipple has become pulled in or looks different, for example changed its position or shape
  • liquid that comes from the nipple without squeezing
  • pain in your breast or your armpit that’s there all or almost all of the time
  • a swelling in your armpit or around your collarbone

It’s not just a lump – there are other signs and symptoms of breast cancer to look out for too. Get to know what’s normal for you, so you can spot any unusual changes quickly.
