Along with the support you will find here I am posting the details of our helpline so please feel free to call to talk your concerns over, we also have information aimed at men concerned about breast cancer and there is a forum where you can 'talk' to others who have been through similar experiences:
Firstly I want to tip my hat off to anyone suffering ATM.
I have had a stupid irritating cough for last 8 maybe 10 weeks. Went to GP sent for XRAY, results were their was something on the left sideIin my lung. They arent overly concerned stating its a mild form of pneumonia. Last weekend noticed my left fella Brian (thats my nipples name) was hibernating and wouldn't awake. Whilst tinkering I noticed under my nipple their is a hard painless lump, hump bump whatever you call it. Obviously I got an appointment Monday to see Doctor his words were this is a game changer.
Now I think the internet is brill however it can be the devil incarnate too. So to summarise I have an appointment Tuesday at ye old Breast clinic, please see the bullet points (no pun intended) and be honest.
