To the ladies out there, please ask yourself a question. Do you self-examine your breast? I didn't do it previously as I worried that I might discover something from the examination. Yes, I'm running away from reality or you may simply call me silly. However, thing has changed after my I did a lymphatic massage on Tuesday. I must admit that the lady boss is very experienced & she is skillful. Her hands ran through my breasts first. Then I noticed that her hand kept on circulating on my left breast. I sensed something wasn't right. As expected, she told me that she could felt a lump on my left breast. What a shocking news to end my day!
Then I started to google for breast cancer information once I was back home. I felt so worrisome after reading all the articles. Then I decided to turn off my notebook. I do not wanna read it anymore. Maybe it was nothing serious!
It was sad to say that I have a sleepless night. The lump was a nightmare to me. I drove to Seremban with a disturbing mind. I checked from Chloe who has her cyst aspirated before. Ee Ting who has wrongly self diagnosed also advised me to check with my O&G before jumping into the conclusion. So I rushed back to Pantai Ayer Keroh after half a day work.
Dr. Vishnu who is my O&G thought I come for womb check up again (Haha... I tend to check my womb every 6 months ever since I had my chocolate cyst removed in Jan 2007). Guess I am too 'kiasi'! Then I told him my problem. He has a thorough check on my 2 breasts. He even followed through with a ultrasound scan. Then he was pleased to tell me that there isn't any lump or cyst found in my left breast. It was just the enlargement of my breast lobule. Phew.... what a relief!
So ladies, please remember to do your BSE or go for a lymphatic massage once a month after your menstrual cycle! The key? Early detection.
