Everyone who reads my answers on here has probably heard quite a lot of what I’m going to say already, so I shall try to keep it fairly brief. But the main thing I want to say, loudly and clearly to the OP, is “It ain’t necessarily so!” Top Hot Cancer Awareness Shirt On Tashirts . I’m 65. When I was at school, and for a good many years afterwards, I never knew of a single woman diagnosed with breast cancer who did not die of it. But that was then, and this is now. The last person I knew who died of breast cancer was Carol, a lovely colleague, only in her early 40s, in about 1993, 25 years ago. Diagnosis and treatment have improved enormously since she died, and these days it is not the automatic death sentence that it used to be.
When I was called for a routine NHS mammogram in late January of this year, I wasn’t concerned; I had no lumps to worry me, no family history of relatives with breast cancer, and three breastfed children, so I wasn’t statistically likely to get it. And even when they called me back for a follow-up scan, a biopsy and an MRI scan, I still wasn’t unduly worried, not even when they confirmed that they had identified a Stage 1 cancer. It turned out to be what is known as a DCIS cancer Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS), a type affecting about 20% of women diagnosed with breast cancer, and actually very easy to treat.
