Breast Health

The NHS reports that an estimated 50,000 women and 400 men receive a breast cancer diagnosis ever year in the UK. 

The most common form of cancer that affects women is breast cancer. According to the NHS, one in eight women will have breast cancer.

It’s important to keep track of any changes in your breasts. If you notice any changes in your breasts, it is recommended that you contact your GP as soon as possible.

The most common changes in your breasts that the NHS recommends you look out for include:

  • Breast or armpit pain that is constant;
  • A change in your breast size or shape;
  • A change in the skin texture of your breasts;
  • A lump or thickening in your breast that feels different from your surrounding breast tissue;
  • A redness or rash on or around your nipple;
  • An inverted (pulled in) nipple or a nipple that has changed shape or position;
  • A swelling around your collarbone or in your armpit; and
  • Discharge from one or both of your nipples.
