Here are a few facts we should know and watch out for about breast cancer :

1. Formation of lumps in breasts of armpits which may or may not be painful.
2. Discharge from nipples in the form of clear fluids or blood
3. Reddening of breast skin
4. Change in the appearance of nipples and further breasts
5. Unfamiliar rashes

If you encounter any of the symptoms, it’s recommended for an immediate doctor visit.

Celebrities, models and designers participated equally in the raising awareness by posting their #pinkselfies .

While I too did acknowledge the idea, I strongly feel each of us should know the inside out of breast Cancer and be aware throughout the year. It’s time we should spread this awareness and understand the ways to prevent it. Your breasts too need your attention and love.

I am thinking pink. Are you?
