47,700 women and 300 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK.
Knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and what your boobs look and feel like normally could save your life. Start the habit of a lifetime today.
Know your Boobs!
Why not? You feel your boobs anyway, so get to know them a little better. That way, you’ll spot any problems faster than you can say ‘CoppaFeel!’.
You need to know what it is you’re looking and feeling for. Learn and familiarise yourself with the possible signs and symptoms, but remember that there can be many reasons for changes in the breast which are harmless.
Whenever. There is no good or bad time for boob time. Perhaps get your partner to lend you a hand and remind yourself to CoppaFeel! regularly.
Wherever. At the bus stop? On top of a mountain? In the shower perhaps. Find a place for boob time in your routine and try to keep it up.
The person you need to see if you find anything unusual is your GP. Share your worries and demand action. You know your boobs better than anyone and because you’ve copped a feel regularly, you know your boobs better than your GP and will be in a better position to tell them what is normal for you.
