To mark breast cancer awareness month, the Southern Trust has hosted a range of activities to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms.

The Trust’s breast screening and health improvement teams organised information sessions in the Buttercrane Shopping Centre, Newry and the Macmillan Information Centres in Daisy Hill Hospital have a breast cancer awareness information stand and a breast family history event is also planned later in the month. Events were also held in Portadown and Craigavon.

Dr Linda Johnston, Director of Screening for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust said: “Being breast aware is part of caring for your body. It means getting to know how your breasts look and feel so you know what is normal for you.

breast cancer awareness month are: Gilly McLoughlin, Portadown, Kate Hamilton, ASDA store manager Cathy McAlinden, Emma Woods, Breast Unit Radiographer, Southern Health and Social Care Trust, Sandra Murray, Breast Unit Radiographer Southern Health and Social Care Trust and Sinead Hughes, Promoting Wellbeing Specialist Lead Southern Health and Social Care Trust

“If you notice any changes in the breast it is important that you attend your GP. They may refer you to a breast clinic to have a detailed assessment. You should feel reassured that in most cases, breast changes will not be cancerous, even if they need treatment or follow-up appointments. However if it is breast cancer, the sooner it is diagnosed the more effective treatment may be.”

While most breast cancers occur in women over 50, it can develop in either men or women of any age. Symptoms to look out for include:

  • A change in how your nipple looks
  • A change in the size or shape of your breast
  • A lump or area of thickened tissue in your breast
  • A lump or swelling in your armpit
  • A rash on or around your nipple
  • Dimpling on the skin of your breast
  • Discharge from your nipple

Breast screening aims to find breast cancer at an early stage, often before there are any symptoms. To do this, an x-ray is taken of each breast (mammogram). For more information visit http://www.cancerscreening.hscni.net/
