So i asked around, or might I dare say coerced a couple of women, most of them between the ages of 18 and 24 about what they know of breast cancer, their reactions and anything they can comment on relating to the disease. Sure this Blog is for the Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria, nonetheless, I guess you could say i cheated and asked any and every woman i know, Nigerian or not.
The results, which will be trickling in over the coming weeks are posted below unedited…
P.S. It is funny when most times, Ladies feel uncomfortable when a guy asks them about breast cancer. Whether its via some social network or in person, I must say their reactions are interesting. I should look into recording some video sometime. I digress! Back to the matter at hand.
I hope you find this informative. I know i will.
I know to check for lumps. I know not all lumps are cancerous but if you feel one or think you do you should go to see a doctor. I know if i was diagnosed with cancer i would feel like someone pulled the rug beneath my feet, i'd be scared im going to die. I'd pray i don't though. oh i'd feel like dyingg because of the fear of everything. The stress the treatment, the loosing of my hair and other side effect of chemo, the surgery. The pity in peoples eyes not sure i would be able to take it.
