Self examination is crucial.
Professor Carlo Palmieri, a leading breast cancer expert from the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, Wirral gives the following advice:
Regularly examining your own breasts can help to find a cancer early, when it’s more likely to be treated successfully.
About 20% of cases are found this way so get into the habit of doing a breast
self-examination once a month to familiarise yourself with how your breasts normally look and feel.
Do this several days after your period ends, when your breasts are least likely to be swollen and tender, or, if you’re no longer having periods, choose a day that’s easy to remember, such as the first or last day of the month.
Check for lumps, dimpled or puckered skin, nipple changes such as inversion, discharge or a rash.
Mammograms are also not as scary as you may think. I went for one last year and I will be scheduling one again soon. You can read about my experience HERE (which was scary to be honest).
