    News just breaking as she scraps her Australian tour. Let's hope it can be fixed and further raises the profile of the illness

    Survival rates are increasing all the time and she will obviously be getting the best possible treatment and care. Fingers crossed that everything turns out ok.

    It has been caught early so she has a good chance.

    I wish her well and a speedy recovery.

    It is a reminder of mortality so do the following please!

    1) Male - check your nuts for odd lumps

    2) Female - check your breasts for odd lumps

    This is very important

    No, that's wrong -

    1) Male - check your wife's breasts for odd lumps

    2) Female - check your husbands nuts for odd lumps

    Of course it's something that must be done regularly, but you might as well enjoy doing it!! :smashin:

    And all the very best to poor Kylie!

    lovemunkey187, wishing Kylie all the best.



    If you're not married is it permissable to borrow someone else's wife for the checking?

    Hi,

    I concur with the above. My thoughts go out to Kylie and her family, on what is a traumatic event for anyone - especially someone as young as she is. :( No one deserves to discover this terrible disease, but more so for the younger people in the world. Let's hope that her recovery is quick and as painless as possible. :)

    I'm not medically minded whatsoever but what triggers breast/testicular cancer ? We know cigarettes are the main cause of lung/throat cancer but why does the human body just spontaniously create other cancers ?

    All the best to Kylie.

    Family background is a risk factor, as are diet, smoking, lack of exercise, etc.

    My mum had breast cancer and surived. My mother in law had it and died. It is a horrible disease. My wife and I both in a higher risk group for cancer as a whole with our family backgrounds so we do check each other regularly. Sigh. It's a real chore..... :devil:

    There are a small number of men who die from breast cancer each year in the UK. Yes really! Worldwide about 1% of breast cancer cases are men. In the western populations the incidence is generally lower at about 1 case per 100k men.

    I don't know too much but apart from specific triggers for some cancers like smoking for lung cancer - I know there are general triggers for all cancers such as diet, stress, increased alcohol consumption along with genetic disposition. AFAIK breast cancer is largely genetic - I believe they can now check for a specific gene if you have close female relatives that have suffered. If you check positive for this gene then they can offer you pre-emptive treatment such as masectomy to try and avoid getting it. My Aunt had breast cancer but as she's on my Dad's side and not my Mums then I'm at no greater risk than anyone else.

    EDIT: Sorry Squiffy didn't mean to repeat a lot of what you said but we must have been typing at the same time :D

    The best way to say it on an open forum is the old adage use it/them or loose it/them. :blush:

    Best wishes to Kylie for a health out look.

    Diane had a scare a couple of years ago. My sister in laws sister died from it. Dianes father died of bowel cancer in feb her uncle also died of bowel cancer in the same year. She's very aware of cancer and how to increase your chances of avoiding it, bowel cancer is very preventable.


    I'm sure Kylie gets checked out often, and hopefully she'll make a speedy recovery.
