This Photo Of 12 Lemons In An Egg Carton Can Help Save Women’s Breasts

One in eight American women will develop invasive breast cancer in her life, according to BreastCancer.org.

That’s a startling statistic, and it’s part of the reason that so many women are trained early on in how to do self exams of their breasts.

There’s just one problem: we all know how to sweep our breasts to check for lumps, but, until you actual have a tumor or lump, you don’t really know what you’re feeling for.

Enter a genius new awareness campaign called Know Your Lemons.

The centerpiece is a photo of 12 lemons in an egg carton. Each lemon looks a little different, and that’s because each lemon represents a different way that cancer might manifest.

Most importantly, it doesn’t just show you what cancer looks like, it gives you a relatable model that everyone understands — a lemon — and uses it to model how a lump or bump might feel to your hand during a self exam.
