Back to Health A to Z. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK. There's a good chance of recovery if it's detected at an early stage. For this reason, it's vital that women check their breasts regularly for any changes and always have any changes examined by a GP. In rare cases, men can also be diagnosed with breast cancer.
This is why it is so important to feel AND look at your boobs. Dimpling and puckering of the skin can look similar to orange peel. It is important to check not just your boob but your upper chest and armpit too, as these areas also contain breast tissue.
