Breast cancer is the most common cancer in England, with around 44,300 women diagnosed each year. The older you are, the more likely you are to get it — one in three women who get breast cancer are aged 70 and over - so don't assume you're past it.
If breast cancer is detected early, it is more treatable. If you notice any changes to your breasts, tell your doctor straight away. You're not wasting anyone's time by getting yourself checked out. Finding it early could save your life.
