Breast cancer diagnosis - two years on

Two years ago today, I was with a good friend who had also been through breast cancer, getting my biopsy results at Charing Cross Hospital.  No one thought the results would come back positive, much less that it would turn out to be advanced breast cancer, spreading to the bones (spine and pelvis).

Apart from a very deep, seemingly small lump in my right breast, I wasn't showing any of the other signs of breast cancer.  It could happen to you.  Please, take the time to coppafeel today.

Signs of breast cancer:
  • A lump or mass in the breast.
  • Swelling of all or part of the breast, even if no lump is felt.
  • Skin irritation or dimpling.
  • Breast or nipple pain.
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward)
  • The nipple or breast skin appears red, scaly, or thickened.
  • Nipple discharge.
