      I did have pain with mine that was localized in my nipple for several months but my tumor was located in my ducts and could not be felt by physical exam. It was detected by a mammogram. If you are having pain that last through several menstral cycles, please have it checked out by your doctor and a mammogram as soon as possible.

      Most often breast cancer is painless, unless the tumor involves the skin or the chest wall. Any lump that is new, painless or not, should be brought to your doctors attention.

      I have saline implants. It is the only way I could get the size I wanted, and cleavage. I'm very happy with them. What is it that you would like to know? Prayers to you.

      People die from car crashes, cancer, or even a common cold (depending on their health). The reason people are so positive is because YOU are NOT going to die from this.

      People die from car crashes, cancer, or even a common cold (depending on their health). The reason people are so positive is because YOU are NOT going to die from this. You have to find the fight inside you & use the love & support around you to kick some cancer ass. Without a positive attitude, the ass kicking is not as easy. Cancer & chemo may take your hair, possibly your toenails, & likely your breasts...but it doesn't have to take your life. You've got cancer...it doesn't have you.

      It's scary, I realize. And you have every right to go through phases of sadness or anger or whatever else you feel. But in the end, it comes down to a battle. And cancer is a tricky little bugger, but this is a battle you will win! If ever you need support or just want to vent, know that people like me are here for you, too. Sending love your way!
