Ella’s Story

“I didn’t really know much about breast cancer before having it. I certainly didn’t think it would happen to someone as young as I was.”

Ella was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 28, after her CoppaFeel! shower sticker prompted her to check her chest. “I was really concerned about going to my GP,” Ella recalls, “but she was really proactive and quite reassuring. She took me seriously and sent me for an ultrasound.”

If you have found something that isn’t normal for you, there’s no need to panic. There are lots of reasons why you may have noticed a change to your breast, however we always recommend making an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible so they can check.
