Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, but over half of black and minority ethnic (BME) women say they don’t check their breasts because they don’t know what to look and feel for.

The UK’s leading support charity for people affected by breast cancer, Breast Cancer Care, was part of an alliance of cancer charities that set up Ethnic Minorities Cancer Awareness Week (EMCAW) three years ago to make sure more information is available to everyone from a BME background. This year EMCAW runs from 11 – 17 July.
