How to check for breast lumps

Dr Louisa Draper

"It’s important to know how your breasts usually look and feel so that you can catch any changes or lumps that might develop early on"

Dr Louisa Draper

In the UK, around 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, only 350 of which are men. Breast cancer is much more common in women, with one in eight women having a lifetime risk developing breast cancer. The earlier the symptoms of breast cancer - like breast lumps or thickened breast tissue - are spotted, the better the chances are that you will have a full recovery.
