I have a genetic testing referral to get tested for the genes. I had uterine cancer after one of my pregnancies that I lost plus all of my family members pass due to some form of cancer 😥 my Aunty had breast double masectomy then got secondary cancer in her liver, back & bones. It broke me.
I do the check all time. Great thread VP.

I am really slack at checking but this thread is a good reminder. I recently had a skin check at my GP too - I would definitely rather pick something up early where possible.

One of my close girlfriends had the genetic test done recently as she lost her mum to breast cancer at a young age.
I believe it was still around $1000 even though she had a direct relative with it.

Please don't let breastfeeding get in the way of feeling your boobs.
I stopped breastfeeding in mid-December, and found a lump in early January. I foolishly assumed it was just a blocked milk duct, and did nothing about it for 2 weeks. My husband pestered me to have an ultrasound and Mammogram...and I was diagnosed with breast cancer, which has spread to the lymph nodes of my armpit.
I am lying here in bed incredibly nauseated, having vomited over 12 times since 1.00am this morning. Side effect of some pretty intense chemotherapy.
I'm not even 40 yet.
I breastfed both my children for quite a while, which is supposed to be protective of breast cancer.
My point? When breastfeeding, don't dismiss cancer as a possibility. Thankfully my husband didn't.
Yes the chemotherapy is horrendous...but I will survive this.
Early detection equals life.
Please feel your boobs

J37 your a GP aren't you? I know many will dismiss this but please look into cannabis oil to help you. I don't believe in it (only to help). But a combination yes. I will pray for you xxx
