From that anecdote I would gather that there isn't free screening from age 40 in the ACT at least.

    On another note, @VicPark I had always imagined you lived in Brisbane, simply because there is a golf course here in Victoria Park that is referred to as Vic Park. From your comment, I can now say you don't live in Qld.
    Golf course, balls....it seems a natural assumption.

    Not to de rail but I always think of @VicPark when I am in the wa suburb called victoria park.

    But back on topic. I do get breast pain occasionally but I thought this was just a hormonal thing. Is it not?

    Under-40, and especially if only recently stopped breastfeeding, the current recommendation is to have both...that is, breast ultrasound and mammogram (with a new technology called tomosynthesis). Combined, these tests have a very good pick-up rate of early breast cancers.

    Sorry Happy Bovine.. Didn't mean to thank your post above. I was scrolling though the thread and my thumb became a bit excited clearly...

    my boobs always feel funny, Ive no idea how to tell if theyre lumpy or not :/

    I have an increased risk of all cancers (due to exposure to radioactive iodine as an infant) and a long history of ovarian / uterine cancers in my family,

    apparently I have an increased risk of cancer in my 40s which is only 12 years away, Ive lost 6 family members and two close friends to forms of cancer so cancer scares the crap out of me

    Good reminder VP. It's so important to check yourself regularly and get your GP to do a breast exam too.

    I had an ultrasound recently as there was a hard lump in one breast, in the part near the armpit. I was breastfeeding so assumed it was just from that, but my GP go me to have an ultrasound just in case (family history of breast cancer). Thankfully it was nothing to worry about and it has since disappeared.

    My boobs are so depressingly deflated since I stopped breastfeeding, I don't really want to acknowledge them anymore let alone get in there for a good rummage, but I will make sure I check them regularly.

    A good time to feel your boobs is in the shower, when you are soaping up under your armpits too.
    So everyone...get soaping!!

    Hey ladies, so have you touched yourself up lately? I had a crack tonight. Might be easier once I stop breastfeeding though.

    How are all the mummas with the big C doing?
