Breast cancer can affect any body.
Getting to know yours could save your life.
Anyone can be affected by breast cancer, but a quarter of young people don’t realise they are at risk. It’s why we’ve launched our new campaign to encourage you to get to Know Yourself. Know your body, know it’s quirks, know how it changes, and if you notice something unusual for you, speak to your GP. Knowing what’s normal for you means you have the best possible chance of early detection, and early detection saves lives.
