Oh Bena. Thank you for posting this. I wish that myth would be dispelled. It is so dangerous. It is why my doc did not think my breast lump (after a case of mastitis) was cancer and left it in me for over 6 months. Now I'm fighting for my life. If I wasn't breastfeeding when my cancer presented maybe things could have been different...

You can do this darling. Be strong - I think of you daily X


Same for me. I was breast feeding at the time I found my tumor and they put me off for 3 months before starting neo-adjuvant chemo. It had doubled in size by that point. I had also had mastitis about 6-7 months prior to finding the lump.
