I have been having regular Mammograms since 2001. I am 56 years old. I have no first relative with breast cancer. I eat a healthy diet, take regular exercise and have always been proactively involved in my Breast health care.
In 2015 I had a clear Mammogram and less than 6 months later I was diagnosed with a very large Invasive Breast Cancer. The Cancer did not show up on my Mammograms. I am now undergoing Chemotherapy, awaiting a mastectomy and full node clearance followed by radiotherapy.
Additional screening ‘Ultrasound’ would almost certainly have found my Cancer earlier and earlier diagnosis would have resulted in a less invasive treatment program.
I hope that together we can share and promote education about Breast Cancer.
