Apparently October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. So ladies (and gents!), how often do you check your Boobies? How big would an unusual lump or bump have to be before you noticed it?
We have had an awful time, but it could have been so so much worse - my Mam's life has never truly been under threat. If she had left it longer before seeking medical attention, or even if she hadn't picked up on the lump until later down the line, then we could be looking at a very different outcome. So please, make sure you check your boobies regularly. Familiarise yourself with them, check with your arm held in different positions so you feel everywhere, get into a regular routine. Then if you are ever so unfortunate as to develop a lump, then you can seek medical advice straight away, and get it sorted.
Breast Cancer is one of the most survivable cancers, with early intervention the key. Get feeling those Boobies!!
