I just read in the New York Post that most women still do not know how to check their breasts for abnormalities.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a charity called Breast Cancer Care, has teamed up with Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa, to help women with life-saving information.
It’s very simple to use. Just search for “Breast Cancer Care” in the skills part of the Alexa app or Amazon website. Follow the instructions.
One in three women still fail to regularly check their breasts. Many say it is because they don’t know how to do it.
These are some of the signs Alexa will help you with:
1. Change in breast size or shape
2. Redness or a rash
3. Nipple discharge
4. Swelling in the armpit or around the collarbone
5. Change in skin texture
6. An inverted nipple
7. Constant pain
Breast Cancer Care reminds you “If anything about your breasts changes, it’s always worth getting checked over by your doctor.”
