World Cancer Day 2020 – Early Detection

The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment. So it is crucial that we learn about the various signs and precautions and check our breast regularly to prevent the onset of breast cancer, which affects millions of women across the globe.

  • Checking your breasts only takes a few minutes.

  • No special technique or training required to check your breasts.

  • Check the whole breast area, including your upper chest and armpits.

  • Do this regularly to check for changes.

It’s as simple as TLC: Touch Look Check

Touch your breasts: can you feel anything unusual?

Look for changes: does anything look different?

Check any changes with your GP

A lump or swelling in the breast, upper chest or armpit

A change to the skin, such as puckering or dimpling

A change in the color of the breast – the breast may look red or inflamed

A nipple change, for example it has become pulled in (inverted)

Rash or crusting around the nipple

Unusual liquid (discharge) from either nipple

Changes in size or shape of the breast

Pain in your breast or armpit that’s there all or almost all the time

Have you felt or noticed anything unusual? If so, make sure you get checked out by your doctor as soon as possible.

Thermography is able to detect cancer early because every cell in our body naturally gives off some small amount of metabolic heat that increases in temperature when an abnormal condition occurs. Thermography imaging makes it possible to detect abnormal activities five to eight years before a lump can be detected by mammography.
