Words by Abi Scaife
Morrisons are reminding people to check in with their bodies - using their underwear.
Tell me more!
The labels on Morrison’s pants and bras now carry a cancer check message from the NHS. Morrison’s ‘Nutmeg’ brand will be showing off the new labels in 240 stores across the UK.
The label encourages people to check themselves out for lumps, bumps, swelling or other unusual changes.
Why is this so important?
Knowing your body and checking it for changes can help to catch cancer and other illnesses. Doing it regularly can help catch them early - and get you the help you need.
