October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Macmillan Cancer Support is encouraging people to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in the UK, with more than 54,000 cases reported every year. It is more common in women over 50 and almost half of cases develop in women aged 65 and over. Men can also get breast cancer, but this is rare.  Debbie Smith, a Macmillan Information and Support Specialist on the unit, says:- "Knowing what changes to look for and when to see your doctor could make a real difference. Don't be scared if you have symptoms. Get them checked."

See your doctor if you have any of these symptoms:-

► a lump in the breast.
► a change in the size or shape of the breast.
► dimpling of the skin or thickening in the breast tissue.
► a nipple that's turned in (inverted.)
► a rash (like eczema) on the nipple.
► discharge from the nipple.
swelling or a lump in the armpit.

Debbie added:- "Most breast changes are not caused by cancer but if you do notice anything that isn't normal for you, see your doctor. If you do have cancer, the sooner it's found, the more likely it is to be successfully treated."

If you need support or just want someone to talk to about breast cancer, call Macmillan Cancer Support free on:- 0808 808 00 00 or visit:- MacMillan.Org.UK. For further information about Macmillan's mobile information service, and planned visits, go to the charities website. If you are unable to visit the unit, but have questions about cancer can call Macmillan on:- 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm) for free. You can find out about Macmillan services near you on the charities website.
