Thank you for posting this, as it is very relevant to my life right now. My mom was just diagnosed Tuesday with Stage 1 breast cancer. Luckily, her annual mammogram caught it very, very early so she should be just fine, but it made me realize I should do the monthly checks. I don’t currently do any checks, but I sure will start now!

I’m 30 now, and had a cancer scare last year.  Breast cancer does not run in my family either.

I had pain for no reason in my left breast, and they sent me in for a mammogram…which found something i my RIGHT breast.  I ended up have 2 mammos, 2 ultrasounds, and an MRI…then they told me they would have to do a biopsy/lumpectomy.  I haven’t felt the same about my breasts since.  

It all turned out benign, but it was the scariest thing ever.  Check yourself.

Bumping this, as it is very important for us to check our boobies.  Or, better yet, have your SO, Fiance, or Darling Husband do it along with you! 

My Maid/Matron of Honor was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer at age 35!  She is a survivor, but it was a huge surprise and shock since cancer did not run in her family.  It was hormone induced, as it developed during her pregnancy and she noticed it during breast feeding. 

So, go check ’em ladies!!

My husbands checks for me on the regular!

Seriously though, I think this should be stickied. I had cervical cancer at 20, and I was on birth control for a number of years. Plus, it runs in the family, so I check almost every time I’m in the shower
