Breast cancer awareness month is here, in October businesses and individuals all over the country are trying to raise awareness and donate towards the fight against breast cancer.
Did you know; every year nearly 60,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, one in eight women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK, nearly 12,000 people die from breast cancer in the UK every year, 1 in 7 women aged 50-70 who attend routine mammograms never check their breasts for signs of cancer outside these appointments and breast cancer also affects men, but it’s rare – around 340 men are diagnosed each year.
The three main risk factors of breast cancer victims are because of your gender, getting older and family history.
It is important for you to check your breasts once a week so you know what is normal for you. If there are any differences that could be suspicious you must immediately get checked out by a professional even though in a lot of cases it could be a false alarm it is better to be over pre-cautious than leave it too late. If you need any help checking your breast tips and demos are easily accessible online. If you are also concerned you have the breast cancer gene please contact your GP to discuss options on how to find out for definite.
