Breast Cancer Awareness ๐Ÿ’—

Many of you will be aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month ๐Ÿ’ž

Although Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, a lot of us donโ€™t really know much about it or how to look out for it ourselves.

What is breast cancer?

Breast Cancer occurs when cells in your breast grow in an uncontrollable way โ€“ causing a tumour to form.

Who can get breast cancer?

Both females and males can get it, although it is much more common for females ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ผ

What causes breast cancer?

Unfortunately, we donโ€™t know. However, researched has found that it is influenced by age, lifestyle and family history ๐Ÿ•ฐ

What signs and symptoms to look for:
- A change in size or shape
- Redness or rash on the skin and/or around the nippleย 
- Discharge (liquid) that comes from the nipple, without squeezing
- A swelling in your armpit or around your collar bone
- A lump or thickening that feels different from the rest of the breast tissue
- A change in skin texture such e.g. dimpling
- A nipple that has become inverted
- Constant pain in your armpit or breast

When to see my doctor? ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ

If you notice any changes at all make an appointment to see your doctor immediately. Most breast lumps arenโ€™t cancer but they should always be checked!๐Ÿ’•
