Did radio interview on BBC WORLD SERVICE sunday night which went ok and another interview on BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast show this morning, this went well also.
Also today I was in Ipswich Star newspaper (but didn’t know I was going to be) http://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/news/capel_st_mary_horticulturist_takes_part_in_study_of_male_breast_cancer_1_1526418
, also in The Independent newspaper .
This afternoon I also had my Check up at the Breast Clinic and saw a different Dr to normal , he checked me over , poking and proding me and says all’s ok and said come back in 12 months. But has also asked if I have ever had a mammogram , which I said I hadn’t as I thought men couldn’t have them . He thinks I should and is going to ask radiographer if possible, if so he will write to me with an appointment . Personally I don’t think I have enough breast to put in machine , but we will have to wait and see .
At least with all the recent media coverage the message about Male breast cancer is gradually getting out there .
