There. I said it. I said it without crying, tears, or more than the teensiest lump in my throat. I have a lump in my breast. It’s 2 cm across, and that’s scary.
They found it on Friday, during my mammogram. More about how that all went down soon, when I can write about it better. I can’t yet. But what I want to say now is this. Yes, I found a lump. Yes, I’m terrified. But it’s not nearly as rare an occurence as one might think. I’m not the only young mom who has found a lump. Just ask these brave breast cancer survivors. If worst comes to worst, and the lump is cancerous — I will remember that these women have already survived it. And so will I.
LifewiththeOthers (blogging at Killer Boob) found hers at 29.
All the gals at the Young Suvivor Coalition, including this group who found their lumps while pregnant, hoping to get pregnant, or breastfeeding too.
Inspire me … who else have you met who has been through this? Who inspires you?
