Boring Stuff
For Adults

Did you go pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month in October? The School Nurses were out in schools making us all aware and also educating us about breast cancer awareness. This year, 55,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and this is why research into this disease is so important and campaigns like this one that make us aware are also vital as the earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment.

This is why it’s so important to know your own body and regularly check your breasts, that way you will be able to notice any changes. If you do notice changes or are worried please speak to your GP, school nurse or text CHAT HEALTH.

Please remember that it is not just women who are affected by breast cancer, although rare; men can be diagnosed as well.

Find out how to check yourself by visiting the Breast Cancer Now website.
