Tumors can be too small to be felt or in a place where they can’t be felt during a physical or self exam.

Mammograms are not fun but can locate these tumors early.

My extremely small tumor could not be felt but had already moved to a lymph node when it was discovered.  I would be in a very bad place if it weren’t for a mammogram.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so spread the news on the importance of mammograms!

If your mammogram is suspicious remember that:img_0625

  1. Thank you for the post! I lost a friend to breast cancer, and another friend just finished her year of treatments and is cancer free. Here in Ireland we can get free mammograms for the women between 50 and 65.

      1. Annual mammogram is a life saver. Even the tiniest tumor spreads to the lymph nodes extremely fast. The same was with my friend. During three weeks between diagnosis and operation ( we are very slow here in Ireland) cancer had spread to her lymph nodes and her lungs. It took a year of therapy to stop it even that it was stage 1 when discovered.
