Breast cancer is one of the deadliest and most common types of cancer in women.
In Australia, according to the estimation, 1 in 8 Australian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. The good news is that, if detected early, breast cancer can be treated successfully in most cases. There are many different ways to detect breast cancer, and early detection is the key to successful treatment.
One of the simplest ways to detect breast cancer early is to be breast aware.
This means knowing what your breasts normally look and feel like without catching any disease, so you can identify any changes. Breast awareness can also help you to detect other types of cancer, such as skin cancer.
