Why My Pictures?

Why did I post those pictures earlier for Wordless Wednesday? I wanted to show my readers why it is soooo very important to do you self exams. I will be the first to admit I was not good at them. I liked to tell the dr I was, but that was a lie! This was a scare...this was a scare that nobody should have to deal with. Had this been cancer, it may have been too far along for me, who knows?

I am now lump free....It hurt, not going to tell you it didn't. The week after picture does not even full show the bruising....but you know, I'm here, I am ok, I am lucky!

I promise to my readers, I will be regular with my self breast exams from here on out....won't you promise too??


  1. OUCH! Hugs, girl!
    I hope you're feeling better, those are some pretty impressive pics. And not in a good way. :(
    I promise - I do my breast self checks monthly! (but I'm also a mammo tech :p )

  2. I promise.

    Also? I think you're super brave and uber awesome for posting your pictures and reminding us all why it's so important that we do this.

    Love you!

  3. I promise I will! My Grandmother died from breast cancer at the age of 40. FORTY!! After all my meds and such for endo, I am scared.

  4. Wow, that is quite the incision. I say I'm good at checking, but really I"m not. I will be better from now on though.

    So sorry you had to go through this with everything else going on.

  5. Icouldn't see the pictures and I had NO IDEA you were having this done, what the Hell have I been doing. I am so sorry I am so out of the loop.

    and M, what happened, my god, I'm just overcome with all I've been missing.

    yes, I promise to self check, every month and have my mammos every year. PROMISE PROMISE

  6. I missed this.

    Yes, it is very important to self-check. I had to have a lump removed from almost the same area when I was a junior in college. Terrifying!

  7. I can't see the photos either, but kudos to you for posting them. I'll admit to not doing self-exams as often as I should. Kind of like flossing...

    I'm so glad everything turned out okay for you. Having been told once that I might have ovarian cancer, I can relate to the feelings you probably had while waiting to find out.

  8. i promise to try. ;)
    hope you are feeling better after that -- ouch!!
