It is hard to believe that two years ago come the 31st I had surgery to remove a small lump that Hubby and I referred to as Humphrey.
I was extremely lucky and they got it all as Humphrey had not invaded any of the four lymph nodes removed with him.
I agreed for them to do the additional test to see if I would benefit from chemotherapy, and Humphrey was nice and low on the charts so I only had to have a course of 20 sessions of radiotherapy.
We had found it early, I was seen and diagnosed within a month, and had my op within 6 weeks. I’m on meds for at least five years and have annual mammograms for those five years, then will go back into the NHS normal screening programme of every three.
Small, treatable, curable.
And it was.
I urge any woman (and although rare, it can affect men too ) who finds a lump in her breast not to delay and get it checked out.
It may turn out to be a cyst, it may be a fatty lump, but then again it may not.
