According to a new study by Angela Ruskin University, women who are unsatisfied with the size of their breasts puts themselves at risk of not spotting cancer.
Unhappy breasted women are less likely to check them for potentially dangerous lumps and changes. The study found that more than a third of the 2000 participants were unsatisfied with the size of their breasts.
Just 29% of women were happy with their size and almost half want bigger boobs. 23% want them smaller.
The study found that breast size dissatisfaction is associated with poorer psychological wellbeing – including lower levels of self-esteem and happiness.
Women who don’t like their boobs were also more likely to be dissatisfied with their weight and overall appearance.
The study found that women who didn’t like their breasts conducted self-examinations on their breasts less frequently, and they also had less confidence in spotting changes.
