Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK – and that's why we want to encourage women to get into the habit of checking their breasts.

Knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer help save lives, so Be Your Breast Friend and check yourself!

There's no right or wrong way to check your breasts – it's about looking and feeling regularly so any changes can be spotted quickly.

It's not just about a lump – other symptoms can include an inverted nipple or change in the texture of the skin. Not every symptom will be cancer, but if you're worried visit Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now for more information and support.

At the moment, 691,000 people are living with a breast cancer diagnosis in the UK. By 2040, that figure will be 1.7 million, so it's important that you check yourself regularly.
