October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


I would just like to take a moment to share something personal.

I was in a car accident in June as most of you probably already know. With the accident leaving me car-less, it also left me with a decent sized bruise by my right armpit on my breast. A knot was left and I don't know if it was there before or not. Looking for the symptoms of breast cancer it made me worry and worry and worry. Odds are in my favor since I breastfed and have no previous history of breast cancer in my family.

I have an appointment set up for a mammogram. I am a little nervous because I have been looking up the symptoms and I have more than one. But since I also just recently ended my breastfeeding journey in March and I read that it can take as long for everything to be back to normal. My doctors also don't seem too concerned. I do not want anyone to worry.

But although I don't know the outcome yet, I am so glad the accident happened. But with this I wish I had kept up with my self breast exams.

I will keep you all posted if you are interested on my outcome. But I have high hopes. And please, for my family and personal friends who read this, don't worry. I am just trying to inform and I'm sure everything will be okay and that it is indeed a knot from the accident. 
 
Please ladies check yourself. Please keep up to date with your mammograms and your GYN visits so they can check you as well. I have linked some great resources on this blog entry. Please take a minute to check them out and please share with friends.

Please stay safe and remember, men can get breast cancer too.

  2. the mammograms now are so sensitive. I went through this same thing with the worry and anxiety...worry and anxiety doesn't help though..better to be distracted, pray or be busy with something.
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

    1. I remember my sister getting one. She wanted me there for everything because I am comforting to her. But there is a 9 year age difference between us and I was about 11 or so when she got hers. Maybe I was scared a little from seeing her go through that.
