At each step inspecting and feeling for any lumps, red or white patches, changes in colour or texture, lingering ulcers or anything unusual.  For the full check visit

Everyone can take part in three simple steps:

  1. Do the check
  2. Record it
  3. Post on social media and tag 7 friends who can do the same
