Woman Warns Others A Breast Dimple Could Be Cancer

One UK woman considers herself 'one of the lucky ones.' She caught breast cancer early after spotting a dimple on her breast. She's hoping to warn others now.

The woman goes only by the name 'Clair.' She was reading an online article about a woman with breast cancer that mentioned the disease doesn't always present itself as a lump.

In fact, this woman in the article Clair was reading started with a dimple.

There was a photo of the woman's dimple, and Clair realized she had a similar mark. She went to a doctor, who confirmed she did indeed have breast cancer.

"Blink and you’d miss it. I only spotted it thanks to another post shared by an amazing friend," Clair told the Daily Mail.

She further stated "I can't feel the lump, even now that I know it's there. I'm not ill. My only symptom is this dimple."

While a lump is often a telltale sign that you need a biopsy, there are other symptoms many women brush off for years, such as redness, rashes or just a change in the texture of skin.

Clair took a photo of her own dimple and posted it to Facebook, begging women to circulate the post. She's hoping to make women more aware that any change in the breast should prompt a woman to see a doctor.
