    Don't forget... MEN can get breast cancer as well. It's rare, but I know a guy who has been fighting it this year. Guys should be checking for lumps as well.

    Thank you all SO much. Your support means the world to me. And yes, absolutely, men can get breast cancer as well. Plus, guys, do those testicular checks every month. It's easy compared to what we have to do. Testicles are wee little things; it'll take like two minutes! (Please no commentary.) If you don't know how, ask your doctor to show you. Or just look it up online.

    As to my SIL, it turns out my brother's been trying to get her to go to the doctor for years, and when they were in for something unrelated, he just took it upon himself to mention it. We're all hoping for the best, of course, but that doesn't sound good.

    You must have ESP. I was just about to post that men aren't immune to breast cancer and should do their own self-exams in the shower, too.

    The thing is, guys don't voluntarily go see a doc unless an appendage has fallen off or they're spurting blood from their jugular. I would hope a lump or breast tissue that feels weird or a pec that seems like it's shifted to the right or something odd would be compelling enough to get a guy in for some bloodwork and his own mammogram.

    Anyway. Good thoughts, vibes, and prayers coming your way for your SIL, Todash. You tell her there are a bunch of randoms she doesn't know over here who are pulling for her. :-)
