Major supermarket and NHS team up to make big change to your underwear – it could help save your life | The Sun

CANCER warnings will be put in undies to encourage people to check for lumps.

Morrisons and NHS England have teamed up for the lifesaving campaign.

The supermarket chain will add NHS labels to its own-brand Nutmeg boxers and crop-top bras.

The tags will urge people to check their breasts or testicles for lumps and to call a GP if they find anything worrying.

NHS cancer director Dame Cally Palmer said: “This is the first time the NHS has worked with a supermarket to put health messaging on clothing.

“I want to urge everyone to look out for lumps and bumps, or anything else that is unusual for you. Getting checked out early could save your life.”

The labels will have QR codes that take people to an NHS website with more information about tumours.

Breast cancer is the most common form of the ­disease, affecting more than 56,000 women a year in the UK.

Testicular cancer is less common, with around 2,400 cases a year, and is most prevalent in males aged 15 to 49.

Both have good survival rates if caught early, but missing symptoms can allow time for the disease to spread.
