I just wanted to remind all the ladies out there to do a quick breast examination check for lumps every week. It's so easy to forget and I certainly don't check mine as often as I should. however on sunday I found a small lump in my right breast and have just been referred to the hospital for further tests.
The Dr has said that many women have lumps and they turn out to be benign, so i guess that the odds are in my favor. But I just wanted to remaind you all to please please check. it could be a life saver!!!

Dear Elle, Thank you for the reminder. Are you feeling okay or is this stressing you out?
When it happened to me I went to pieces a bit , which was surprising as I am usually pretty easy going with my health.
Mine was fine, and nine years later I have had no other trouble.
Please let us know how you are feeling.

Hi Elle-co,

I hope you're managing not to stress too much about this.

It is true that we do tend to forget such things and should be far more careful than we are. Thanks for the reminder.

Hi all,

I'm fine, thanks for asking. It did stress me out a bit at first, but then I figured that there is no point worrying over something that could be nothing. (And i might have had a little retail therapy at the shops today which made me feel much better :lol:)

I'm glad to hear that you have all come through this experiance well, thanks for the positive energy!!!
