Breakthrough is a breast cancer charity. They research the disease to find out how to stop breast cancer starting and developing, how to diagnose it early and how to treat it.
The best way to protect yourself from breast cancer is to check your breasts regularly. Breakthrough made a video called TLC (Touch Look Check) to teach women how to check themselves and what they should be feeling for.
