Trans women and breast cancer

As you all know I am a breast cancer survivor, kind of weird but true. I am a trans woman who got breast cancer after using HRT for 14 months, how cruel. But I was prescribed aldactone and estrodol patch at .075 mg; who knew such a small amount could cause such a huge medical problem.

So, Ladies, know your family history of breast cancer, do your monthly self breast exams, probable more often than every 4 week, cause you never know if or when you will find a lump. If you don't know how to do your exam, ask a nurse or go to the local health department. Get to know your body, it might just save your life one day.
