This was in the local newspaper

I believe this is very important. If a lump is detected early enough the cancer can be beaten. I was never taught how to do this. I am of the firm believe that when a mother talks to her child about the birds and bees and when the young girl gets breasts her mother should teach her how to examine them.

  1. My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago after a routine recalled mammogram. I am very aware of the early diagnosis bit. Interestingly though I went to a update on breast cancer diagnosis recently and the current view is that mammogram and ultrasound on a regular basis ie 2yearly is important but self exam is not very useful for many reasons. One is that the important cancers are difficult to palpate on exam however its better than nothing as they are funded under 40 yrs of age unless there is a strong family history of breast cancer. Ask your GP or practice Nurse if you think you might qualify.

  2. what I should say is that mammograms aren’t funded for under 40year olds
