      Unfortunately, I don't think there's dedication at all on finding a cure for cancer in general. There is researches on new treatments, new medications, less invasive procedures.

      Unfortunately, I don't think there's dedication at all on finding a cure for cancer in general. There is researches on new treatments, new medications, less invasive procedures. But meanwhile the pharmaceutical industry makes millions with diseases, nobody will give up the profits for the cure. When you know that 1 (one) session of chemotherapy runs around $30,000/$40,000, you understand what I mean!

      Any changes to one's body should be checked by their doctor. We aren't doctors here and you need an exam to see what it may or may not be as some testing may be in order.

      This is a change that should be brought to the attention of your doctor. It could be a lot of things other than breast cancer... that is just the one that always comes to mind. We can't tell you what this is but we CAN tell you this should be checked. Take care, Sharon

      According to the National Cancer Institute, a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer depends on several factors, some of which are related to her natural hormones. Hormonal factors that increase the risk of breast cancer include conditions that may allow high levels of hormones to persist for long periods of time, such as beginning menstruation at an early age (before age 12), experiencing menopause at a late age (after age 55), having a first child after age 30, and not having children at all.

      One study found that that women who were current or recent users of birth control pills had a slightly elevated risk of developing breast cancer. Interestingly, this same study suggested that 10 or more years after women stopped using oral contraceptives, their risk of developing breast cancer returned to the same level as if they had never used birth control pills, regardless of family history of breast cancer, reproductive history, geographic area of residence, ethnic background, differences in study design, dose and type of hormone, or duration of use. However, another study indicated that current or former use of oral contraceptives did not significantly increase the risk of breast cancer.

      Overall, there is not currently any conclusive evidence about the link between oral contraceptives an breast cancer.

      Sandra,
      Unless you have a problem with clinical depression it usually doesn't come along with the territory. You could have some problems feeling --down-- because it is kind of a big deal both physically and a bit mentally. Not knowing how important body image is to each and every woman, the realization of the loss of a breast means different things to different women. It is difficult to predict how you will feel. My breasts are small and I didn't particularly have any attachment to them in regards to body image. I just wanted to get rid of the breast cancer and was very happy to get rid of the body part that contained it.
      I chose not to have reconstruction and have done well with a prosthesis. I was 59 when diagnosed and made this decision. It is different if women are diagnosed in their 20's, 30's, 40's etc. A large percentage of them have reconstruction which sounds like it is a long, procedure and not very comfortable. Anyway.... as for depression, if you tend to get depressed or feel down, it may be a problem but I can't say it is as a matter of fact. Hang in there darlin' you are getting rid of a lousy sneaky disease and that IS the most important thing. Take care, Sharon

      Well said Sharon, as usual. I had a double mastectomy about a year ago and I had very large breasts, it was a bit sad to say goodbye to them as they have been responsible for many free drinks in my life haha. But overall I am so glad I did it. I am going through reconstruction at the moment and you are right Sharon it is long and uncomfortable but I would do it all again. The part of the mastectomy that I found difficult was the recovery and not being to do the things I was used to doing like driving and showering on my own. Good luck to you Sandra, you will be fine and like Sharon said you are getting rid of an awful illness and it is the best way to do it. Let us know are you going as you progress. Cheers
