Kylie Armstrong, a 45-year-old woman in Australia, was diagnosed with breast cancer in February. However, she didn’t notice any lumps in her breasts, but what she did notice was ultimately what led doctors to her diagnosis and she wants to share it with other women who might not be aware.
Kylie noticed a patch of dimples on her right breast, which caused her initial concern. Breast cancer doesn’t run in her family, but she went to have it checked out to be completely sure. The doctor felt no lump in her breast upon examination, but after the results came back from her mammogram and ultrasound – the doctors confirmed she had breast cancer.
Apparently, dimpling is a subtle sign of breast cancer or breast infection and you should definitely have it checked out if you see it.
Kylie was devastated by the news, but wanted to spread the awareness of this to others, so she made a Facebook post of her story. It has since been shared over 250,000 times and raked in over 9,500 comments of others sharing their own personal breast cancer stories.
Kylie had surgery to remove the mass found in her breast. She never expected the post to go viral, but is happy to spread the awareness to others in hopes they can also find their cancer early enough to treat, as she did.
