Be Clear on Cancer,
Breast cancer in women over 70
Nottingham City council is supporting the
new NHS Be Clear on Cancer, Breast cancer in women over 70 campaign.
The national campaign, which runs
over the summer, aims to raise awareness of breast cancer
symptoms in women aged 70 and over, informing them that 1 in 3 women who get
breast cancer are over 70, so dont
assume youre past it.
The campaign also emphasises that a lump is not the only sign of breast
cancer. Other possible signs of breast
cancer include a lump in the armpit, nipple changes, changes to the skin of the
breast, changes to breast shape or size. If a woman has any of these symptoms, she
should contact her doctor straight away.
