Zero deaths from breast cancer

Checked your breasts lately?

We'll show you how. Checking your breasts is easy as TLC. 'Know your normal', so you can find any changes in your breasts as soon as they appear.

  1. Touch
    Touch both breasts. You’re feeling for any lumps or thickening of the tissue, even up into the armpits.
  2. Touch
    Look in front of a mirror. Can you see any physical changes to the breast shape, skin or nipples?
  3. Touch
    Check any breast changes with your doctor. Even if you’ve had a mammogram recently.
