For those brave MoMs out there that have been diagnosed and fought Breast Cancer – what were your initial symptoms? and did it ‘show up’ suddenly, or over a period of time? I know the usual checks but everyones’ story seems different and I would like to know I’m keeping an eye out for everything/anything. Thankyou and Keep kicking Cancers Butt !!

  • Breast checks and mammograms are very important. Go to the GP with any lumps or even changes you can’t explain in your breasts. If you’re insecure if you’re doing it right there are video’s on google but you can also let the Gp do it regularly.

  • It is so very important to do regular self breast examinations and get a partner to help too. Have any lumps checked and treated and always get second opinions.

  • My mum found her cancer due to regular self checks every month and the mammograms every 2 years. No other symptoms just a diagnosis
