Monitoring your body regularly can help spot cancer early and save your life
Knowing the signs & symptoms is half the battle! It is important that you monitor your body to detect any red flags for early cancer detection.
- Locate your thyroid gland, which is above your collarbone and below your larynx (or voice box). Don’t confuse your thyroid with your Adam’s apple, which is above the thyroid gland.
- Keeping your focus on this part of the neck, tip your head back, then swallow a drink of water.
- Look at your neck in the mirror while you swallow. Check for any static or moving bumps.
