Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in Ireland, after skin cancer. Better treatments mean that more and more people are now living long and full lives after breast cancer.

Have questions about reducing your risk? Contact our Cancer Nurseline Freephone 1800 200 700.

It's important for all women, from an early age, to know their body and be breast aware. Follow our 5-point breast awareness code.

Finding cancer early saves lives. Breast screening is a very effective way of spotting breast cancer early.
