People who are concerned that they may be suffering the early effects of breast cancer have been told of the changes in their body which should be looked out for.
Nina Barough, founder and chief executive of Walk the Walk Worldwide, admitted that looking for signs of such a serious disease "is a difficult one".
However, she believes that being aware of one's body can help people to find significant changes to it, such as the development of breast cancer.
When it comes to the breasts, Ms Barough pointed out: "It can be a change of tissue, a change in how they feel, a change in the density of them."
The expert also stressed that concerned people should never opt to put off a doctor's visit, as this decision could be the factor which allows the cancer to be caught without any serious problem or grow into one.
Her advice comes soon after researchers at Cardiff University and King's College London said they may have found a system which will allow zinc to be disposed into cancerous cells, thus stumping the growth of aggressive breast cancer.
