Breast awareness and Breast health during COVID-19
The current COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges for every individual and organisation across Australia and the world. It can be a time when our focus on our health may slip, and our breast health and awareness is no exception.
As Breastscreen resumes its services, it is important that women take charge of checking their breasts regularly and maintaining their familiarity with the normal look and feel of their breasts to ensure they are in a position to identify any changes as early as possible.
Please see this McGrath Foundation video below on checking your breasts. Note that whilst any change you find is not necessarily significant it’s important to consult your GP as soon as possible.
