Serious question about breast cancer

I know it is UNREAL how many young girls are more at risk these days. She is only 27. I call her my "lil baby" cuz shes the youngest of my friends. She doesnt tan, or anything like that either. The first time they found the tumor, it ws sdue to a mole she wanted removed "just because", they sent it away and here it was cancer. Thank GOD she wanted it removed. I also have a friend who is now 31, who had her breast removed when she was 30. It runs chills up my arms.

You will need a mammogram and possibly an intraductal dye injection. The observation that the blood is coming from just one duct is against fibrocystic change and is associated about 9 times out of 10 with a benign intraductal papilloma and about one time out of 10 with an intraductal carcinoma. Be sure to have it checked out. The odds are way in favor of being a benign process but even with the small chance of malignancy, if treated early it is entirely curable"

I hope your friend is ok, Keep us updated!

I will be keeping her in my thoughts
Well, just so happens I had an info session and consult with a breast surgeon this morning. Sassybride basically just reiterated exactly what I was told this morning in the group info session that this surgeon does with all her patients. She also mentioned that blood discharge can be related to skin coniditions like cracked nipple. It's best she goes to see the doctor. Catching things early and paying attention to changes in your breasts is key.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
