Find the Cure






Becoming breast aware


It is important that every woman is breast aware. This means knowing what is normal for you so that if any unusual change occurs, you will recognise it. The sooner you notice a change the better, because if cancer is found early, treatment is more likely to be successful. Get into the habit of looking at and feeling your breasts from time to time.


What changes should I be aware of?
■A change in size or shape – it may be that one breast has become larger
■Changes in the nipple – in direction or shape, pulled in or flattened nipple
■Changes on or around the nipple – rash, flaky or crusted skin
■Changes in the skin – dimpling, puckering or redness
■‘Orange Peel’ appearance of the skin caused by unusually enlarged pores
■Swelling in your armpit or around your collarbone
■A lump, any size, or thickening in your breast
■Constant pain in one part of your breast or armpit




Did you know?
■ Early diagnosis is a key to surviving breast cancer.
■More than 1,700 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in Ireland each year.
■Irish women have a 1 in 12 chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime.
■74% of Irish women with breast cancer discovered the lump themselves.
■ Only about five to ten per cent of breast cancers are believed to have a family link.
■The risk of developing breast cancer increases with age. Approximately 80%of breast cancers occur in women over 50 years.
■Around 14 men develop breast cancer in Ireland each year.




What to do if you find something


If you do notice any change in your breasts, see your GP as soon as possible. Remember that most breast changes are not cancer and are harmless. When your GP examines your breasts she or he may be able to reassure you that there is nothing to worry about. If the change could be connected with your hormones, your GP may ask you to come back at a different stage in your menstrual cycle. Alternatively, you may be sent to a breast clinic for a more detailed examination.


Don’t worry that you may be making an unnecessary fuss and remember that nine out of ten breast lumps are harmless

Black and White on Wednesday

Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

Garlic time


I love adding garlic to my food. The only bad thing about it is that after handling it my hands smell and it takes time to get rid of scent. But from this week it's in the past. I always wash my hands with warm water and that was my mistake, after handling garlic you should wash your hands with cold soapy water. This great tip came from someone who's a great chef. He started his own blog lately. Read HERE to see some recipes and some info about garlic

Which one to choose...

The other day I bought the whole box of sweets and in very short time almost all of them were gone. The only good thing was that each of us liked a different sweet, so there was no fighting over picking.

My favourite are snickers and bounty

Which are yours???
