Like most of us, Hayley Browning always follows her doctor’s advice when it comes to preventative care such as checkups and self-examinations, but she decided to take it a step further on World Cancer Day after hearing about another woman being diagnosed on Facebook.
According to CBS News, Browning discovered a lump in her breast by doing a self-examination as she lied down rather than the normally suggested standing shower exam.
“Most websites tell you to check for lumps in the shower but if I had followed this advice, the lump may have grown too large to be treatable. Not even the surgeon could feel my lump when I was standing up.”
After sharing this information with friends on Facebook, the post went viral and has since gotten more than 150,000 shares. Thousands of women also thanked Browning for her advice. See her post below!
