One mom never dreamed she would post a revealing photo of her breast on Facebook for all of her friends and strangers to see, but after spotting something unusual on her left breast, she knew she had to share it online in the hopes of warning others.
Like every other woman, Claire Warner had always been warned to look out for the obvious signs and symptoms of breast cancer such as an obvious lump, a rash, or even swelling, and she never thought she had anything to worry about since she never found any of those typical signs.
However, when she spotted a very faint dimple on her left breast, she knew something wasn’t right and a biopsy confirmed her suspicions: the dimple was a sign of breast cancer.
“This is a picture of my left boob,” Claire explained in her now viral post. “The small purplish bruise is where I had a biopsy taken. The minuscule dimple up and to the left of it is a rare and little-known symptom of BREAST CANCER. Blink and you’d miss it. I only spotted it thanks to another post shared by an amazing friend.”
“I can’t feel the lump, even now that I know it’s there. I’m not ill. My only symptom is this dimple,” said Claire, who will undergo surgery, chemo, and radio therapy. And now, Claire is hoping this photo might save someone else’s life.
“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check yourself (males as well as females) and get your loved ones to check themselves also. If I can help one other person, the way I was helped, then it’s been worth showing my soon-to-be-reduced left tit to the world.”
