Here's what Carol had to say...

“I always knew it was important to know all the signs of breast cancer, but it was looking for a lump that always sprang to mind.

“Then after a workout in the gym one morning I noticed a tiny spot of red discharge from my nipple when changing. I had no other symptoms, but thought it was a bit unusual so at the end of the week I went to see my GP.

“It never crossed my mind it could be breast cancer, so when I was diagnosed I was totally stunned. Even when I told people, many assumed I’d found a lump.

“It’s so crucial that even if someone finds the slightest change and it just doesn’t seem right, they go and see their GP. I’m so glad that I did and was able to be treated quickly.”
