IMPORTANT: Woman are going braless for an important reason

October is breast cancer awareness month in the UK and tomorrow women around the country will be gong sans bras in support of the cause.

Over 50,000 British women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year and as a result No Bra Day is growing in popularity.

The movement first started in 2011 and support spread rapidly with the help of social media with women using the hashtag #nobraday.

It began in Toronto, Canada and was started by plastic surgeon Dr Mitchell Brown.

No Bra Day is now celebrated by 30 countries worldwide

The aim of the campaign is to encourage women to carry out self examinations and raise awareness of breast cancer symptoms.

If you don’t want to go braless, both men and women are encouraged to wear something purple tomorrow to show support for the cause.

No Bra Day also encourages women to go and have a mammogram – which can detect breast cancer up to two years before a lump appears.

If you are unsure of the signs of breast cancer, the main things to look out for are:

1. Lump or thickening in your breast or armpit

2. Change to the skin of your breast

3. Changes in the shape or size of your breast

4. Dimpling of the skin or thickening in the breast tissue

5. A nipple that's turned in (inverted)

6. A rash (like eczema) on the nipple

7. Nipple changes or discharge

8. Pain in your breast

9. Any other unusual changes to your breast

If you find or see any of these, make an appointment with your GP.
