RARE SYMPTOMS OF BREAST CANCER

IMPORTANT READING ABOUT PAGET'S DISEASE:

Please forward to all of the women in your lives. . Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, friends, etc. In

November, a rare kind of breast cancer was found. The sister of a friend developed a rash on her breast,

similar to that of mothers who are nursing. Because her mammogram had been clear, the doctor treated her

with antibiotics for infections. After 2 rounds and it continued to get worse, her doctor sent her for another

mammogram, and this time it showed a mass. A biopsy found a fast growing malignancy. Chemo was started in

order to shrink the growth; then mastectomy; then a full round of Chemo; then radiation. After about 9 months

of intense treatment, she was given a clean bill of health. One year of living each day to its fullest. It returned

to the liver area. She took 4 treatments and decided that she wanted quality of life, not the after effects of

Chemo. We had 5 great months and she planned each detail of the final days.

After just a few days of needing morphine, she slipped away saying she had done what God had sent her into

the world to do and now it was her time to go. Her message is shown below.

PLEASE Be alert to anything that is not normal, and be persistent in getting help as soon as possible.

PAGET'S DISEASE:

This is a rare form of breast cancer, and is on the outside of the breast, on the nipple and aureola. It appeared

as a rash, which later became a lesion with a crusty outer edge. I would not have ever suspected it to be breast

cancer, but it was. My nipple never seemed any different to me, but the rash bothered me, so I went to the

doctor for that. Sometimes, it itched and was sore, but other than that it didn't bother me. It was just ugly and a nuisance, and could not be cleared up with all the creams prescribed by my doctor and dermatologist for the dermatitis on my eyes just prior to this outbreak. They did not seem concerned that it might be cancer. Now I

suspect there are not many women out there who know a lesion or rash on the nipple or aureola can be breast

cancer. Mine started out as a single red pimple on the aureola. One of the biggest problems with Paget's

disease of the nipple is that the symptoms appear to be harmless. It is frequently thought to be a skin

inflammation or infection, leading to unfortunate delays in detection and care. What are the symptoms?

The symptoms include:

1. A persistent redness, oozing, and crusting of your nipple causing it to itch and burn.

(As I stated, mine did not itch or burn much, and had no oozing I was aware of, but it did have a crust along the outer edge on one side.)

2. A sore on your nipple that will not heal. (Mine was on the aureola area with a whitish thick looking area in

center of nipple.)

3. Usually only one nipple is affected.

HOW IS DIAGNOSED?

Your doctor should have a mammogram of both breasts, done immediately. Even though the redness, oozing

and crusting closely resemble dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), your doctor should suspect cancer if the

sore is only on one breast. Your doctor should order a biopsy of your sore to confirm what is going on. This

message should be taken seriously and passed on to as many of your relatives and friends as possible; it could

save someone's life. My breast cancer has spread and metastasized to my bones after receiving mega doses of

chemotherapy, 28 treatments of radiation and taking tamoxifin. If this had been diagnosed as breast cancer in

the beginning, perhaps it would not have spread...

TO ALL READERS: This is sad, as women are not aware of Paget's disease. If, by passing this around on the

e-mail, we can make others aware of it, and its potential danger, we are helping women everywhere. If you can,

take a moment to forward this message to as many people as possible, especially to your family and friends. It

only takes a moment, yet the results could save a life.

OCT. is Cancer month lets see how many people we can make aware of this and try to save their lives.

Thank You,

Lilly

2. HERBAL :

For Diarrhea.

Acrimony, blackberry leaf, and raspberry leaf teas contain tannins chemicals that have a binding effect on the

mucous membranes in the intestine and help the body absorb fluids. The teas also replenish lost fluids, which is

important in preventing the dehydration that may result from a prolonged bout with diarrhea. Use Acidophilus

to restore adequate levels of healthy bacteria to the intestine and is especially valuable if diarrhea is related to

antibiotic use. Psyllium, a soluble fiber, is more familiar as a constipation treatment, but it absorbs excess fluid

in the intestine and adds bulk to the stool.

5. FACTS AND TIPS:

Because I could not stop for Death; He kindly stopped for me If work has taken over your life, finding a way to

manage your time won't solve the problem. Instead, you'll need to manage yourself, get your priorities straight,

and focus your attention on what really matters. Most important, if you long to live a more authentic life, one

that reflects your values and desires, then you must give your spiritual well-being a more prominent place in

your daily life.
