Tracey Spicer Bares all to Encourage Women to Check Themselves for Breast Cancer

Former newsreader Tracey Spicer has bared all in a new campaign encouraging woman to check themselves for breast cancer.

To encourage more women to check themselves, she takes off her top in a new video “Letstalkaboutbreasts” and is filmed having a breast examination and a breast scan.

“On the first day of filming I’d never met the crew and the first thing I had to do was take my top off and have a doctor poke my boobs,” she says. “I did it because it was important, I’ve got to the age where I don’t give a damn what people think of me, whatever is the most effective way to get the message across I’ll do it,” she says.

Eight members of Tracey’s extended family have died of cancer and the 48 year old mother of one may have a gene mutation that makes her susceptible to the disease.

She is now planning to have a test for the BRACA 1 and 2 genes which have been linked to pancreatic cancer, they are also implicated in around 5-10 per cent of breast cancers.

Women are urged to examine their own breasts to check for lumps once a month and women over the age of 50 are eligible for a free mammogram.
