Breast cancer tends to be diagnosed in women over the age of 50, but it can affect people of all ages. It’s absolutely crucial that women regularly check their breasts, and always speak to a doctor if they notice any subtle changes.

Breast cancer is caused by cells inside the breast growing out of control.

Diagnosing the cancer early is absolutely crucial to protect against any unwanted complications.
