Nikki Taylor, 52, of Tameside, was diagnosed with breast cancer in February this year (2022).
The mother-of-three spotted a dint in her right breast when she looked in the mirror after taking a shower.
She said: “At first I thought I must have lent on something. But as soon as I saw it, I knew something wasn’t right. I rang the doctor the next morning.”
Nikki’s GP referred her to Tameside Hospital to be checked out and she had a mammogram, a biopsy and an ultrasound.
Nikki said: “Deep down I knew then it was cancer. I knew it wasn’t just some benign lump.”
The biopsy result confirmed she had breast cancer. Luckily Nikki’s cancer was caught early, and she was treated with a lumpectomy. She then had radiotherapy over 5 days at The Christie at Oldham. She did not need chemotherapy.
