• New radio campaign: If in doubt, get it checked out!
Thanks to your donations, a fresh new NZBCF radio campaign is on the Pacific Radio Network encouraging women to share any family history of breast cancer and to get unusual breast changes checked out! Pacific Island women are more at risk of dying of their breast cancer. Check out other RESOURCES HERE.
• Found a lump? If you've noticed an unusual breast change, get it checked out even if you've had a mammogram recently. To enable a diagnosis, your doctor should action a 'triple test' on any suspicious symptom. One, a physical breast exam. Two, an ultrasound and/or mammogram and three, a biopsy or removal of a small tissue sample from the affected area. DOWNLOAD TRIPLE TEST LEAFLET.
