Breast Cancer Care launches educational app

Breast Cancer Care has launched a free mobile app, helping people to recognise the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

The Breast Awareness tool encourages people to get to know their breasts through a quiz, which asks users to identify whether a series of breast changes are breast cancer symptoms or not.

Users are then given information about the signs and symptoms based on their answers. They can also share their results with family and friends on social media, helping to raise even more awareness.


Learning signs and symptoms

Commenting on the app, Breast Cancer Care’s assistant director of digital Jo Wolfe, said: “We are thrilled to launch this fantastic app, which gets across a serious health message in a light-hearted way. Breast cancer isn’t just about a lump – it’s important that people get to know the other signs and symptoms to look out for.

“With this exciting new digital tool, we can reach key audiences in a way that works for them, and make the idea of getting to know and checking your breasts more accessible for everyone.”

The app is available to download now on ITunes and Google Play.
