October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Whilst I wait for the clinic to advise me of an appointment for my first mammogram since my mastectomy last year, I cannot emphasise enough the importance of getting any irregularities or abnormalities in the breast checked out.
Mammograms are uncomfortable, but not painful as a rule, and Breast Cancer is not a death sentence.

They are painful to me but I still make sure I get the mammogram and ultrasound every year.
Good for you Lauren. Take care.
Just do it (thank you Nike). And thank you Di for this important reminder! ❤️
Thanks for the reminder!
I am waiting for my appointment. Because they were closed for several months there is a backlog of appointments to fill. I think I might be higher on the list so maybe before the end of the month??
I’ve chased mine and should be hearing something soon. I have to be issued with a pink card as I’m on a five year watch. Good luck for yours.
The last time I went, maybe a month ago, they had a new machine that was much faster and less painful! It didn’t pull all the skin and pinch like the older machine.
I never realised I had so much upstairs until they squashed it all on the plate. Should take half the time now as they only have the one side to do. Working on that as they’ve reset the clock for my 5 year watch.

thanks for the reblog. It is indeed important, and even more so to remember it can also affect men. Take care.
You’re right. Early detection saves lives.
I’ve had two strikes (2016 and 2019) and still here.
I have read about that. I am glad that you caught them in time.
I was indeed very lucky, and offer my utmost support to anyone who is going through the same thing.
You’re so right. Check check check xxx
