Living with Breast Cancer / Re: diagnosed with triple negative BC

Thank you!

I will check these out :)

Living with Breast Cancer / diagnosed with triple negative BC
« on: December 02, 2020, 12:08:57 pm »

I am currently undergoing treatment for TNBC. I've been on a combination of Keytruda and chemotherapy and one of the worst things has been feeling alone and misunderstood. Most people know about metastatic BC but I feel like TNBC is largely forgotten. Would really appreciate some tips for finding community during this tough time. Esp with COVID-19 I have been feeling very lonely. I have a supportive husband, but my kids are grown up with their own kids and live across the country, so it's hard to feel so disconnected. thanks :)

Living with Breast Cancer / When should I worry
« on: January 06, 2020, 05:01:48 pm »
hi all,

I have a tendency to be a hypochondriac, so I need some advice here:
I have a history of breast cancer in my family and have been feeling fatigued, nauseous, some swelling in my breasts, and slight pain as well.

Could this just be some weird pms thing or am i potentially experiencing warning signs of breast cancer??? for reference i am a 35yr old woman.

Wow. Really wish I had known about this for relatives and friends that wanted to keep their hair. What a good resource. I see they are raising money for it? Is it expensive? Is there anyway to make it affordable?

My mom used to worry about marks specifically on the foot, saying it was pretty unusual for freckles to be there so it could be cancerous. Recently I’ve noticed a few and am not sure how long I’ve had them but they look like normal freckles to me. Is this cause for concern just because they are on my foot?

Cancer Research News & Studies / Re: New information on safety of tofu??

so the good news is that soy can help prevent breast cancer, but diets really high in soy apparently can mess with your ovarian function. I have heard from others and online that a lot of times it depends on how much the soy has been processed. It’s always better to have less unprocessed foods in general. There is an article on the site that addresses soy here https://www.cancerhealth.com/article/still-unsure-soy and id still say asking your doctor is safest, but moderation in all diets is important.
