Woman shares image of 'dimpled' boob as breast cancer warning

Woman shares image of 'dimpled' boob as breast cancer warning | Cancer Awareness | Scoop.it
An Australian woman battling breast cancer has selflessly revealed a personal photo of the bottom of her bosom to show women around the world that the puckering on her skin is actually a tell-tale sign of the disease. Kylie Armstrong of Melbourne took to Facebook on Monday to share a close-up photo of the 'three very, very subtle dimples' on the bottom of her breast, revealing that the slight indentations are a sign of breast cancer. 'This is what my breast cancer looks like,' she wrote. 'I felt no lump. The [general practitioner] GP felt no lump. However, she listened to me when I said my breast looked different to usual and when I raised my arm I could see very, very faint dimples on the underside of my breast.' Female intuition: Kylie Armstrong of Melbourne was recently diagnosed with breast cancer after she went to the doctor's over concern about three 'very, very subtle dimples' on her bosom Spreading the word: After she was diagnosed, Kylie took to Facebook to share this photo of the puckering on her breast to warn women around the world that it is a tell-tale sign of breast cancer Kylie went on to say that her doctor sent her for a mammogram, but after the scan came back inconclusive, she was sent for an ultrasound. 'The ultrasound found the cancer deep in my breast close to the muscle,' she wrote. 'These three dimples have turned my world and my family's world upside down.' EIGHT SIGNS OF BREAST CANCER A change in size or shape Redness or a rash on the skin and/or around the nipple Discharge that comes from the nipple without squeezing A swelling in your armpit or around your collarbone A lump or thickening that feels different from the rest of the breast tissue A change in skin texture, such as puckering or dimpling - similar to orange skin Your nipple becoming inverted (pulled in) or changing its position or shape Constant pain in your breast or armpit Source: Breast Cancer Care Kylie explained that her diagnosis has shocked her and her family to the core, and they are dealing with a wide range of emotions. 'We are shocked. We are numb. We are emotional. We are sometimes OK. We are pretending it's not happening,' she wrote. 'We are trying to absorb information. We are dealing with tests. We are crying. We are trying to continue as normal. 'We are angry. We are sad. We have more questions than answers. We are doing our best to cope.' Kylie said the message and phones calls that she and her husband and their children have been receiving have been helpful, but they sometimes bring them to tears. During this difficult time, Kylie found it important to spread this potentially life-saving information. 'I am sharing this because I hope I can make people aware that breast cancer is not always a detectable lump,' she warned. Please go straight to your GP if you notice any change in your breast. It could save your life. Please share to spread awareness.' Kylie's photo and words have been shared more than 98,000 times since they were posted on Facebook on Monday, with many people taking to the comments section to thank her for her selfless bravery and wish her a speedy recovery.

Happier times: Kylie, who is pictured with her husband Pete, said her family have gone through a roller coaster of emotions since her diagnosis 'Thank you for the post. May you be healed quickly,' Denise McGinty wrote, while Patsy Hayden, added: 'Thanks for sharing I will show this to my daughters as well. I do hope all goes well with your treatment.' And Jodi Rockell wrote: 'It was very brave of you to share so thank you. [I] will pay closer attention to any changes as I always thought you would feel a lump. I wish you all the best with your recovery.' But despite the overwhelming positive response Kylie has received regarding her photo, someone actually deemed it inappropriate and reported it to Facebook because it contained 'nudity'. However, Facebook sent Kylie a message explaining that although the image was reported, it hasn't been removed because it doesn't actually for violating any of its community standards. Kylie shared a screengrab of the message on Thursday while continuing to urge others pass her photo along. Selfless action: 'I am sharing this because I hope I can make people aware that breast cancer is not always a detectable lump,' Kylie explained when she shared the photo of her breast Victory: Kylie also posted this screengrab that reveals someone reported her photo to Facebook because it contains 'nudity', however, the social media site concluded it doesn't violate any community standard 'Thank you Facebook for deciding not to remove my photo!' she wrote. I appreciate your support in allowing the continued spread of awareness. Please continue to share the post.' Unsurprisingly, many were outraged that someone actually had the audacity to report her photo. 'Thank you for sharing and turning a negative into a positive,' Ellis J Currie wrote. 'My mum shared your post as she's a breast cancer survivor. I can't understand some people and to be truly honest, I had to read to know it was your breast. What you have done is amazing and more people should follow your lead to educate the nation.' And Andrew Hogg added: 'Great to see common sense has prevailed. Sending you all my positive vibes. You are a strong woman Kylie and [i] know you will fight this b*****d with all of your might.' On Thursday, Kylie also announced that it was the day of her surgery, simply writing: Today is my surgery. My stomach is churning. Time to get this bloody cancer cut out of me!'
