My GP sent me to a breast clinic in Sydney. After a mammogram, ultrasound and core needle biopsy, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 36.
I had no signs or symptoms and it was actually during labour with my son, in August 2013, that the doctors thought they could feel something abnormal on my cervix.
I’d always gone for regular Pap tests, whenever I got the reminder letter in the mail. I knew it was important that if anything was ever wrong, it was found early.
