    Have just found out that my mum has breast cancer and I cant stop crying. It is only in the early stages and primary cancer so can be treated.
    She was also ill in hospital 2 years ago when i was pregnant and had the miscarriage so I need to be strong for the baby and pull myself together but its so hard.

    First of all :hugs:

    This is terrible news, but the success rate and treatment for breast cancer is fantastic nowadays.

    My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago-I was devastated like you, but please do not with hold ur feelings from ur mum. This is a journey u go through together, and it is a long one.

    Have they said what type it is? Ie feeding off oestregen?

    My mum endured lengthy chemo and radio which was horrific to see, but she is alive and well now.

    Here if u need to chat, and please show ur emotions to ur mum and family, and be there for her too.

    All I can say is I used to take my mum for granted but since then I had a big reality check and appreciate her 100 times more.

    Your in my thoughts

    xx

    Thanks K. I am feeling more positive after reading your post. the cancer is feeding off the oestregen as far as I know but will find out more when i see her today. She only found out yesterday, bless her and everyone was out so she had nobody to turn to. She had been given lots of leaflets to read and is remaining positive.

    Thanks also Layla for wishing her well. x

    Im sorry I dont really know how to offer advice on the subject but my thoughts are with you. It much be a very nerve racking time, I remember how scared I was when my mum had to get a lump checked out a couple of years ago.

    Try to stay positive, lie you said its early stages and very treatable. Big :hugs: :hugs: to you and your mum.

    Hugs

    same thing happened with my Gran at Christmas, they did a lumpectomy and she was supposed to have 6 weeks radiotherapy but it turned out that she only needed half of that.

    If it's in the early stages, like Gran's was, I'm sure she'll be fine hun.

    Go and spend some time with her, she needs you and you need her babe
