I feel for you hun, I get them horribly too! Atleast we can take a little solace in knowing that having them may reduce our chances of breast cancer.

I'm glad your mum is a breast cancer survivor!! Is she still doing well? I know mine are hormonally related so hopefully that means I'm in the lower risk category, plus, thank goodness it's not common in the females in my family.

I was watching on the news the other day about a girl who had the test done to see if she carried the "breast cancer gene". It turns out she did and she opted for a double masectomy to avoid ever getting the cancer Shocked That was really brave and smart in my opinion Yes

She's a lot better, we did all panic a little at one stage as the drs realised it had spread into her brain Sad Fortunately though they realised more or less straight away and she had 2 weeks of intensive radio therapy and she's in remission now.

As far as I know my mum is the only female in our family to have had breast cancer, but I do check my boobs regularly.
