Woman raise awareness of breast cancer symptoms

66

A very concerned woman shared a pic of her breast showing how the breast cancer first started as dimple advising women about breast cancer awareness.

While most of us associate a lump, swelling or a change in size or shape with breast cancer, it doesn’t always present itself that way.

This was the case for Sherrie Rhodes, a mother-of-three whose diagnosis started with a dimple.

After seeing a post on Facebook that named dimples as a sign of breast cancer, Rhodes decided to visit her GP upon discovering two dents in the side of her right breast, according to reports.

She was then referred to a breast clinic where she was given the devastating news that she had breast cancer on Monday.

But despite the shock, Rhodes knew that she had to warn other women and took to Facebook to share a picture of the dimples.

“Yesterday I was diagnosed with breast cancer,” the brave mum wrote.

“It came as a total shock as this dimpling (in the pic) is the only symptom I had. I wasn’t too worried as there was no lump or anything. Unfortunately it came back as breast cancer.

“Please check your breast regularly and don’t ignore anything that is different. If I hadn’t seen a post like this previously I wouldn’t have known that this dimpling was a sign of cancer. Please share and raise awareness.”

The Facebook post has since been shared more than 400 times with an abundance of women praising her for raising awareness while others have also come forward saying that they had no idea dimples were an indication of breast cancer.

“Yesterday I touched my breasts for the first time in years and it was because I saw this heartbreaking status from my friend Sherrie,” one person wrote.

“Thank you Sherrie for raising awareness so soon after your diagnosis. You’ve already inspired me more than you know.”

“Early detection means better treatment outcomes. Well done Sherrie,” another said.

Other possible symptoms of breast cancer include a lump or area of thickened tissue in a breast; a change in the size or shape of one or both breasts; discharge from a nipple; a lump or swelling in an armpit; dimpling on the skin of the breast; a rash on or around a nipple; or a change in the appearance of a nipple, such as becoming sunken.

  12. I believe everything typed was very reasonable.
    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not good., however
    what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean Woman raise
    awareness of breast cancer symptoms – Shakarasquare is
    a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and
    watch how they write article titles to get people to click.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get
    people interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my
    opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  13. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad
    for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
