Breast cancer for the under-50s

Breast cancer is far less common in the under-50s, but this can leave younger people with a diagnosis feeling isolated. This group is a place for them to come together, share experiences and support each other.

A mad few weeks

So it has been 3 weeks since I popped to the Drs to have a quick look at my dodgy nipple and what a whirlwind it has been

told at 43 I’m very young for this to happen

referred to hospital after biopsies and ct and mri found I have a 2.5 cm in my left breast and in my lymph nodes

booked in to start chemo this Thursday followed by operation in April then radiotherapy bit scared but think it’s just to get started and not know what to expect

I don’t feel like my feet have touched the floor

Dear Kdtae,

I am sorry you've got to go through all this.. It such a horrid shock, but honesty as soon as things get started, you will start to feel better. Give yourself lots of goals and treats to get through the next few months... 

This is a great place to ask any questions or voice any concerns about little things that might me worrying you along the way.  

Take Care.  

Lots of BIG love, 

Sukki xx
