Breast Awareness

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation encourages women and men to practice breast awareness – to know how your breasts normally look and feel, so that you notice any unusual changes earlier and discuss your concerns with a health care provider.

Even though some breast changes are normal, other changes are not. Unusual changes can be caused by a benign (noncancerous) condition, or they may be a sign of cancer.

Being breast aware will help you to detect unusual breast changes if they occur. It is beneficial for women and men of any age to be breast aware.
 

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation invites you to learn more about breast awareness by exploring this section of the website:
