She Noticed Something Shocking On Her Breast.. Every Woman Must Read

Breast cancer is terrifying, but it's also important to talk about the issue as it's a matter of life and death for a lot of people out there. Some people get uncomfortable talking about breast cancer or its consequences because early detection requires a very close relationship with our own bodies and close self-examination.

Kylie Armstrong is one such woman, who opened up her personal experience with the cause and how she discovered it after examining herself perfectly. 

When Kylie Armstrong went to the doctor for the first time and mentioned that her breast looked a little different than normal, she didn't expect anything major. She raised up her breast to reveal three scarcely visible dimples underneath her raised breast. 

"I felt no lump," she said. "The doctor felt no lump as well." As a precaution, she was sent to get a mammogram done. There were no obvious signs of breast cancer, so she was asked to have an ultrasound as an extra deterrent. 

That's when the shocking conclusion was discovered.
