The Important Breast-Cancer-Awareness Photo You Need to See

You know how important it is to be checked for breast cancer, but sometimes the signs are a lot more subtle than you might catch. One woman spotted something underneath her breast that could have easily been overlooked, and now she’s using her photo to spread awareness to other women about the importance of taking any mark seriously. Lisa Royle of Manchester, England, saw some “very subtle dimples” underneath her breast. Dimpled skin might not be one of the first signs of breast cancer that come to mind, but the American Cancer Society lists skin irritation and dimpling as possible symptoms. Lisa wanted to share this photo before undergoing a mastectomy in order to help educate other women about possible symptoms. See Lisa’s post below, and then read about foods that lower your risk of breast cancer and 10 things every woman can do to help prevent breast cancer.

Ok so I never thought I'd post a boob picture on Facebook but I thought I would before it gets chopped off next week….
