Breast Cancer Awareness month

This month, we’re committed to showing you that no matter who you are, whatever your experience of breast cancer – we’re always with you.

How can we help you?

We’re helping patients and healthcare professionals spot the signs and symptoms of secondary breast cancer.

Signs and symptoms

It's important to get to know your breasts. Check your breasts regularly and see your GP if you notice any changes. Find out more.

Our advisory committees

We focus on four key areas of research: risk and prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and secondary breast cancer. Learn more.

Every way we can

At Breast Cancer Now, we’re accelerating research and providing vital support, every way we can. We won’t stop until we find a way forward for people like Pam, Tony, Fran, Irene, Roger and Stella.

Your stories

When Anne found a lump in her neck, she had no idea it could be linked to the breast cancer she had years earlier. She tells us how she got the news, and how secondary breast cancer affects her today.
