Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff
My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.
My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2
My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
My mum only found out through a routine check provided by the NHS. Most people don’t go to them because they think “it won’t be me”. But sometimes it is. Please persuade your parents or aunties or anyone who gets offered the chance to go. You can’t be too safe. My mum was able to get the treatment she needs (exactly the same as the last person) because of this. These tips are so important.
