Breast aware

There is no standard shape or size for breasts, and every set is different.  It is normal for breasts to change in size and shape at various times in your life – menstruation, pregnancy, age and weight changes can all alter the shape and size of a girl�s breasts.  It�s also normal to have two different-sized breasts.
It�s important for all girls to be aware of their breasts.  Become familiar with your breasts and know their look and feel. Things to look for include:

  • A lump or thickening in the breast
  • Any sudden change in breast size or shape
  • Changes to the skin of the breast, such as dimpling or a rash
  • Persistent or unusual pain
  • Discharge from the nipple

If you notice any of these changes, see a doctor immediately. Remember � breast pain or lumps in the breast rarely mean you have cancer.
