Have you checked for Lumps & Bumps lately?
All across campus tomorrow the University will be hosting Lumps and Bumps, a 12-hour collaborative event hosted by Loughborough University and Loughborough Students’ Union which aims to equip attendees with the knowledge and confidence required to check themselves.
Each session will showcase a range of techniques that can be used to detect these life-threatening diseases, as well as raising the profile of the vital work carried out by our charity partners – CoppaFeel! and Ballboys.
The event is open to all regardless of any prior training that you may have received. We strongly believe that refreshing your memory of what to look out for is just as important as learning the techniques and signs in the first place.
There is no restriction on who can attend the sessions and we welcome attendees to learn how to check both breasts and testicles if they wish to.
The sessions themselves are simple and take around 30 minutes. The format will be a mixture of presentation-led content with an opportunity to then practice technique on specialist training mannequins.
