Do You Have Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer is one of the most common cancers that people get. Men can develop breast cancer as well as women. If detected early your chances of survival are greatly increased.
About 6 years ago a good friend of mine developed breast cancer and had to have her left breast removed. She is still alive today and has just recently under gone a lumpectomy
on her right breast and radiation treatments. Her prognoses is good.
She made one error that resulted in the removal of the breast. When she found the lump in her left breast she did not immediately go to the doctor.
Do a weekly breast self examination and if you detect a lump see your doctor immediately.
