Dr Hilary teaches us how to check our breasts

During last year's Bin Your Bra campaign we asked the nation to donate their old bras to raise money for vital research into breast cancer.

With a staggering 94 per cent of women not able to name the five common signs and symptoms of breast cancer, Dr Hilary Jones did a live breast examination on our model in the studio, to show women how they can check their breasts correctly.

Against Breast Cancer research focuses on identification of factors which influence the ability of breast cancer to spread to secondary organs – the development of metastases.

Uniquely the projects undertaken address three interlinked areas which may influence the patient outcome: Diet and lifestyle, molecules of the immune system and cancer cell biology. They are developing a test for recurrent breast cancer. More information can be found here.
