I lost a beloved sister in law to breast cancer because she was scared to go and have her suspicions confirmed. She went to late. She left three beautiful daughters behind. Do not let this happen to you. Do not do that to your family. Give yourself a fighting change. Please!

Some op the early warning signs of CANCER:

Indigestion or you find you have difficulty swallowing

Vomiting or nausea

Your voice is hoarse

You have a cough that will not go away

You smoke

You have a change in bowel or bladder action

Changes in warts or moles

You have unusual bleeding and or a discharge from anywhere in the body.

If you find a lump, anywhere on your body

You could also notice a thickening in the breast, your neck, under your armpits or any where else on your body

You just do not feel right. Remember no one knows your body like you do. Get a second or a third opinion if you feel that there is something wrong.

Please you owe it to yourself firstly and secondly to your family to have yourself checked out. It is better to be a little paranoid and stop cancer in the early stages that to act mucho or to be scared and leave your loved ones behind.
