Only a few weeks ago, Hayley Browning was diagnosed with breast cancer.

In a brave post on Facebook she shares a tip which she says was critical to her finding her lump so early.

‘Most websites tell you to check for lumps in the shower,’ she explains.

But for Hayley, her lump couldn’t be felt while standing.

‘So this is a call out to all women to check for lumps lying down, as well as standing up.

‘I could only feel the lump whilst lying down and it completely disappeared standing up.

She says if she had only checked herself while standing it could have been too late by the time she found her cancer.

‘I want to reach as many people with this message and help find more #LaidBackLumps’
