I had a breast cancer scare a couple years ago. I felt a lump under my breast which alarmed me. So I went to the doctor and had it scanned. They found a lump (don’t know the exact term) but thankfully it’s nothing to be alarmed of. Looking back, I think It has something to do with the fact that I wasn’t able to breastfeed my eldest. That’s why when I had Zack that’s one of the reasons I was more determined to make it right.
Have you heard of Juliana Rancic? I was shocked when she announced she had breast cancer a couple of months ago. She has been trying to get pregnant through IVF but no success. Unfortunately, the hormones injected to her also caused her to have breast cancer. Thankfully, she detected it early and she’s now dancer free. She will also become a mommy through a surrogate in a couple of months.
Because of stories like that I am also scared of breast cancer. It’s one of the number one killers of women in the world. I know the fact that I have breastfed now reduces my chance of having one. It’s still no guarantee but I’m somewhat comforted with the idea. Anyway, you better read this infographic to know more breast cancer facts from The Breast Cancer Society, Inc.
