Hey guys, my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and she just beat her chemo treatment! But I have been experiencing breast pain for about a week and my period starts in a few days. I don’t know if this is PMS I’m experiencing (19 yrs old) because I’m getting older or if this is a health risk.

I struggle so with my heart lately. I think part of is being physically sick...but I'm horrible envious of my friends who have their mommas, grandma's, children, grandchildren. I feel like I'm on the outside watching my friends lives. I trusted someone last year with my inner most private heart and was left "betrayed"? Used? My body just feels ragged. The Drs are still trying to figure out what is causing the pain near my ribs. My pnuemonia seems to be responding to this second round of antibiotics. I just feel....empty...distant...

I've recently gone thru a bazillion tests AGAIN trying to figure out what's wrong. A tech was stunned to see the entirety of my chest scars. I've been opened and sewed back up so many times. I once measured and it's 27 1/2 inches total. People assume that if you're not in "active treatment" that your cancer is over and there's no reason to feel sad or afraid or depressed. When I was first diagnosed, it all seemed relatively uncomplicated... mastectomies and then "new boobs." But that's not how my journey has gone. I had hesitations about reconstruction even after meeting 3 different surgeons. It's "good" that I had that because with all of the complications I've had it would have been like having mastectomies 2x. This is my chest...and sometimes I'm okay with it. I have wonderful, oversized cozy hoodies to hide in. But when I have an occasion where I need to be kinda dressy, I get sick to my stomach. Another complication from all of the surgeries is incredible pain when anything is tight or puts pressure in my chest. I was around female friends recently at an event...and when I went home, I cried myself to sleep. I envy them...their beautiful outfits with blouses that are sparkly and fit so sweetly. It's not just that I don't have boobs or that I can't wear prosthetics, my chest is horribly uneven and dents in. A plastic surgeon did a revision a few years ago and so it's not as uneven as it was, but I have a very concave dent on one side. My beautiful friend Traci (the stunning blonde in the picture) who is now in heaven, flipped up her shirt once to show me her new boobs. I still laugh because it was only the second time I'd met her. She had cried with me the day that I got the call that my cancer had returned 3 years later. Hers came back shortly after mine. It was bittersweet to walk ride thru that rollercoaster of emotion with her. Breast cancer is not new boobs...it's pain, adjustment, self consciousness and tears. When people ask me about my cancer, I wait a moment before I reply. Sometimes it's people being casually polite. If you want to hear my story, make sure that you are ready for the reality.

To my pink sisters...how did you cope with all of the after effects of chemo...like your hair and eyebrows not being the same as they were. And the fear that the cancer will return? Mine already did once.

Hey everyone. My mother found a lump on her left breast on the upper side earlier this year. She got a breast ultrasound and mammogram and then she was sent to get a biopsy. My mother had gotten a biopsy earlier this month and just recently just got her results. Her results showed positive for breast cancer. There is apparently three tumors in her breast. Apparently it is an invasive type of cancer. I'm still trying to understand the complete situation. I'm very worried. The doctor's want to start treatment as soon as possible (by next week). They are also going to do other tests as well as a MRI and CT scans before chemo. They want to do at least 8 rounds of chemo before they do surgery to remove the tumors. My mother is 45 years old and her grandmother had Breast Cancer but at a much older age. I feel helpless. I'm trying not to stress out but I just feel so bad constantly. I don't want my mother to go through this. It's hard for me to cope with this situation. My father and brother are very supportive but they are not the type of people that are expressive of their emotions. I'm trying my best to have hope but it's really hard. Any advice on how to be supportive and how to cope with this? How can I be hopeful when things seem so helpless?

Today I used my hair brush for the first time since I lost my hair to chemo almost 2 years ago. I have been using a small comb since my hair wasn’t long enough to use this brush. Going back to using it made my day :) Every wound is going to heal, Just hang in there ❤️

I dont know. I had NO lump. Even after they knew it was there, they couldn't feel a lump. My attitude was always, It is what it is, just take one day, one step at a time and we'll get through it. Don't worry because if it is then you'll take care of it. If it isn't, then you've worried for nothing.

Hi everyone... both of mine have been hurt a lot.. to do anything or even lay. I’ve watched videos to try and feel, but to me it feels like I have nothing but lumps and anxiety is getting the best of me. I don’t know what I’m doing and to even make the appointment to get scans I start crying... any advice?

Hi! I’ve had a mammogram and they found something, then 4 diagnostic mammograms and an ultrasound later, they said we’ll see you in 4 months and gave me the “probably benign” diagnosis. It’s a starburst spiculated mass? Then Covid-19 happens and I lose my job AND insurance. By the time the Radiologist office reopens... I cant make my follow-up appointment because I can’t afford more testing. Ugh feeling stressed. 😕 Any advice? Thanks!

Hey I’m wondering if anyone who knows more about this topic could help me? I’m sort of getting myself worked up because I’ve been noticing a bit of discoloration around my breasts. Sometimes the bottom of one areola looks darker/more red than the rest of my breast and the breasts appear to be a bit redder than the rest of my chest. I don’t have any other symptoms and there’s no pain but I still feel anxious. Also I have been picking at them for a couple of months so I assumed that could have something to do with it. I don’t go to the doctors until next Friday so I was wondering if I could get any insight to help me stay calm until then?
