Re: LEFT BUST

Right handed, Left Mx
Two children, both over 9lbs (less said about that the better!!) breast fed both for a year (last feed on first birthday).
I was interested in Maggie1964's comment #287 about toxicity. For a couple of months prior to dx, I noticed I was waking up each morning with a very acidic back of the mouth/ throat. This abruptly stopped after my Mx and ANC, although I am not sure that this will enter onto the list of symptoms to watch out for.....

Re: LEFT BUST

Right handed. Right breast. Breast fed 4 children. All my babies weighed over 8lbs - read somewhere that if you have large babies you are more likely to get BC. By the way I'm only 5ft tall so my babies seemed even bigger to push out!

Re: LEFT BUST

Read an article that said the left breast is usually bigger than the right therefore more tissue for BC to develop, just a theory as no one knows.
My BC was on the right and my right side is bigger than my left side, rings etc that fit perfectly on the left didn't fit same finger on the right, just made me think xx

Re: LEFT BUST

answered this once, but want to again and add more (possibly irrelevant) info. Right handed. Fed five babies equally on both sides, except youngest (now 30 year old) who I fed predominently on right. Blind in left eye, worst hand for RA is right hand. Left hip is worst. Left breast now no longer exists!! Any links there?

Re: LEFT BUST

Really intestesting thread. I'm right handed left breast affected. Breast fed two children for about six weeks then my milk supply was not enough so they went on the bottle.
I blame my cancer on 14 years of HRT after early menopause (41 years of age) but obviously will never know if that is right or wrong. But that's what I feel.
I would like say to other women go with your body, don't introduce chemicals, let nature have it's way.

Re: LEFT BUST

Right handed, left side mx....
Couldn't breast feed, as got engorged breasts.
Would like to ask odd question, did anyone notice that they had a strange smell about them?
I had a very acrid smell under left arm (opposite to mx side),terrible sweating and the smell was so pungent even after showering. Hadmentioned to GP but didn't think a problem. I mentioned to breast surgeon and said I wasn't surprised that there was something wrong with me as I had felt very toxic for some time. He said that there were case studies were babies wouldn't take from a certain breast, it then resulted in mother having BC. What he did say was that they couldn't confirm if baby was rejecting breast due to smell or taste of milk....Interesting isn't it maybe they should look into this theory more closely.
He also said that dogs could smell tumours....

Re: LEFT BUST

This thread is very interesting.
I'm right-handed, left breast. Breast fed 3 children and not overweight. Years ago someone who saw me spraying deodorant under my arm said she was shocked I was still using aerosols as I was increasing likelihood of getting cancer and if I did it would be in left breast as if you are right-handed you spray more under left armpit. I thought what rubbish!?! Mind you since BC diagnosis I have thrown out aerosols and only use stick deodorant!

Love to you all whichever side you find yourself on.

Re: LEFT BUST

Right handed / left breast.

(Just a thought - while googling I discovered the lymphatic drainage system around the body, which deals with infection etc, and noticed that more of its work happens on the left side of the body - could this be the reason for more left bc?)

Re: LEFT BUST

Hi All,

I am right-handed but use left hand for a lot of things like brushing my teeth, drinking from a mug and ironing (when I used to do it!) and also when I fed my four children I used the right breast more and wondered if there was a link as bc in left breast. very interesting thread.

take care all, Liz.
