Did you know that breast cancer affects more than 500 men each year in the UK? As part of Lorraine's Change and Check campaign to get everybody checking for the signs of breast cancer, Dr Hilary Jones explains what men need to know about the disease.
Joining us live from the cobbles of Coronation Street, actress Sally Dynevor pledged her support to Lorraine's nationwide breast cancer awareness campaign, Change and Check. Sally was diagnosed with breast cancer almost a decade ago, so the cause is particularly close to her heart. She'll be trekking to Everest later this year to raise funds for Prevent Breast Cancer and tells Lorraine how her training is coming along.
Lorraine launches a new campaign to raise awareness of checking regularly for the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, by placing Change and Check stickers in changing rooms across the country. In the UK over 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year and the earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the higher the chances of successful treatment.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime but more than 50% of women say they don't know the early signs of the disease. Dr Hilary Jones shares his step-by-step guide to checking your breasts. It could save your life in the time it takes to get changed.
