Checking your breasts is easy as TLC so watch other Kiwi women show you how. Around half of all breast cancers are found because women noticed a change and showed their doctor. So check your breasts monthly from your early twenties and get to know your normal. If you notice any changes, see a doctor (even if you've had a mammogram recently).

Eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer in NZ every day and most have no close family history of the disease. A combination of checking your breasts and regular mammograms from 40 is the best way to find breast cancer early when it's more treatable.      DOWNLOAD TLC GUIDE
