Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Every October we unite to create awareness around one of our most vicious diseases. Breast Cancer.

It haunts 1 in 9 women and 1 in 29 women will lose their fight and breast cancer will take their life. We all know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. On a positive note there is so much awareness around Breast Cancer and it is supported by numerous businesses. Two lingerie companies who are supporting Breast Cancer this year and selling a limited “pink” bra are Berlei and Panache.

Panache will be launching their best selling and super awesome Sports Bra in a delightful Hot Pink. It will retail for $74.95 and you can find your nearest stockist at www.panachelingerie.com.au . Panache Lingerie will be donating $2 from every bra sold.

Any change is worth talking about

In Australia, over 11,700 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year and around 2,500 women die from the disease.More than half of all new cases of breast cancer are found by women or their doctor noticing a change in their breast. Finding and treating breast cancer early provides the best chance of effective treatment.

Whatever age you are, it’s important that you get to know the normal look and feel of your breasts. You don’t have to use any special method – just look at and feel your breasts when you’re showering or dressing and get to know what’s normal for you.

Being aware of your breast changes is important even if you are having regular mammograms.
Changes to look for include:
• a new lump or lumpiness especially if it’s only in one breast
• nipple discharge
• a change in the size or shape of your breast or nipple
• a change in the skin of your breast such as redness or dimpling
• an unusual pain that doesn’t go away.

If you notice any new or unusual changes in your breast, see your GP without delay.
If you are unsure about what is ‘normal’ for you, ask your GP to check your breasts.
Remember – any change is worth talking about.
