    Julia replied: '是. And it wasn’t that I didn’t want to come and see you [at that time] in the studio and talk about it, it’s that I wanted to [continue filming] and be in the woodlands and finish that series of films for you, because they are really important for people to feel the love for nature.

    Explaining how this is the last live TV before her operation, Julia added, '是, this is my last live TV before the op so I will see you on the other side.

    Julia recently broke down in tears as she spoke of her upcoming operation during an appearance on Woman’s Hour.

    ‘Very quickly your life changes and there is this glimmer that the first thing you think about is death and the worst possible scenario’, 她说.

    She had to have another mammogram this year and though that didn’t return anything unusual, doctors found a shadow at her follow-up appointment.

    Speaking of the first signs, 朱莉娅说: ‘About a year ago I noticed a lump in my breast. I was away on a work trip and then I came back and we went into lockdown.

    ‘I admit I was a little bit sloppy. It took me a month until I spoke to my GP, who I’ve known since I was 18.

    ‘Fast-forward a year I still had a lump, and I had something called micro cysts.

    ‘I was told to keep an eye on them which I did. I went for my follow mammogram which I insisted on having. I told them I had this pain that I could feel in my lump.

    ‘It wasn’t until the third physical examination that a doctor discovered a shadow which turned out to be a ‘tiny lump’.

    Julia needed to have a mammogram right away. ‘Within minutes I was having a biopsy, that’s when I knew I was on a different path,’ 她说.

    ‘That was the first moment I felt sadness and fear because everything just changed so quickly, but of course that’s what happens with cancer.

    泪流满面, the presenter said: ‘Anybody who has been through this will know that you can’t help feel fear and I’m somebody who is very positive and I’m taking it one step at a time. Human instinct.

    How to check your breasts – and what to look out for

    By Liz O’Riordan Breast surgeon and breast cancer survivor

    The most obvious sign can be a lump, either in the breast or high up in the armpit. It might be visible, or only obvious when you feel it. But other signs include dimpling of the skin on the breast, an inverted nipple or bleeding from the nipple. A red rash can also be an indication of an underlying problem.

    HOW TO CHECK The best time is during your period when the balance of hormones means the tissue will naturally be less lumpy and sore. If you’re post-menopausal, any time is fine, although most women find that checking on the first of the month is a good way to remember.

    • Stand topless in front of a mirror and check your breasts face on, and then from each side. If your breasts are large, lift them up and check the skin underneath.
    • Lift your hands above your head and look again – do they look any different?
    • Put your hands on your hips and tense your chest muscles and check again.
    • Lie down to feel your breasts and, using the flat surface of your fingers, push down on to the breast tissue. Feel your whole breast, in a circular motion from your cleavage to your armpit.
    • Also check in the armpit itself, pushing the skin and fat against your ribcage.
    • If you find a lump anywhere, check the opposite breast or armpit – chances are it will feel the same.
    • If you’re concerned about something you’ve found, check again in two weeks. If it’s still there, get it checked out by a doctor.

    ‘The first thing I thought about was my children.

    Emma Barnett went on to ask how Julia went about how she and her husband Gerard shared her diagnosis with their two children.

    ‘We waited to tell the children because they were about to start school, we wanted to get them in a steady place,’ 她说.

    ‘It was the hardest conversation that I’ve ever had to have in my life. I really had to steel myself to be strong but show that you’re vulnerable as well.

    ‘One of my little girls said: “Can I still hug you mummy?” 我说 “of course you can, I’ll need your hugs more than ever”.’

    The Dublin-born star admitted her brain ‘started to explodewhen she was given the devastating diagnosis and she’s now preparing to undergo a mastectomy to remove her left breast next month, while surgeons will also remove tissue from her lymph nodes to establish whether the cancer has spread.

    她说: ‘My surgery is booked for October, obviously it’s a huge thing for women. To lose a breast is a massive trauma to our emotional state.

    Meanwhile Phillip Schofield sent out his well wishes to Julia on This Morning.

    Phil said: ‘Everyone here at This Morning sends their love. Lots of love to you Julia.

    The former Watchdog host admitted her brain ‘started to explodewhen she was given the devastating diagnosis and she’s now preparing to undergo a mastectomy to remove her left breast next month, while surgeons will also remove tissue from her lymph nodes to establish whether the cancer has spread.

    Although Julia has been told her ‘sizeable tumourcould be ‘trouble to treatbecause of where it is positioned, she is hopeful that it’s been caught early enough to treat.

    She told Mail On Sunday: ‘I have to hope I have caught mine early enough.

    ‘A mastectomy is a shattering thing to go through but it means that I am going to live and be here for my children.

    But the presenter is trying not to look too far into the future and is simply focused on the next step of her treatment.

    她说: ‘Cancer has so many points, the diagnosis seems like everything, but it isn’t. It puts you on a pathway and you have to navigate that while holding back your emotions so you are not overwhelmed all the time.

    ‘Right now I’m simply focused on having surgery because I don’t know how I am going to be, if I will have more cancer to deal with, how I will cope with recovery, how life will feel afterwards.

    乳腺癌是世界上最常见的癌症之一,每年影响超过200万名女性

    乳腺癌是世界上最常见的癌症之一. 在英国,每年有不止一个 55,000 新案件, 这种疾病夺走了生命 11,500 女人. 在美国, 它罢工 266,000 每年杀人 40,000. 但是是什么原因导致的,以及如何治疗?

    什么是乳腺癌?

    乳腺癌是由癌细胞产生的,癌细胞在其中一个乳房的导管或小叶的内膜中形成.

    当乳腺癌扩散到周围的乳腺组织中时,称为“浸润性’ 乳腺癌. 有些人被诊断为“原位癌”, 没有癌细胞长出导管或小叶的地方.

    多数病例发生于≥1岁的女性 50 但是年轻女性有时会受到影响. 乳腺癌可在男性中发展,尽管这种情况很少见.

    分期意味着癌症的大小以及它是否已经扩散. 阶段 1 是最早的阶段 4 意味着癌症已经扩散到身体的另一部分.

    癌细胞从低到高分级, 这意味着增长缓慢, 高, 增长迅速. 初次治疗后,高级别癌症更有可能复发.

    导致乳腺癌的原因?

    癌性肿瘤始于一个异常细胞. 细胞癌变的确切原因尚不清楚. 人们认为某些东西会破坏或改变细胞中的某些基因. 这会使细胞异常并“失去控制”.

    尽管乳腺癌可以毫无原因地发展, 有些危险因素会增加患乳腺癌的机会, 如遗传学.

    乳腺癌有哪些症状?

    通常的第一症状是乳房无痛性肿块, 尽管大多数乳房肿块都没有癌变并且是充满液体的囊肿, 良性的.

    乳腺癌通常扩散到的第一处是腋下的淋巴结. 如果发生这种情况,您的腋窝会肿胀或肿块.

    乳腺癌如何诊断?

    • 初步评估: 医生检查乳房和腋窝. 他们可能会做乳房X线检查等检查, 乳腺组织的特殊X射线,可以指示发生肿瘤的可能性.
    • 活检: 活检是指从身体的一部分取出一小块组织样本. 然后在显微镜下检查样品以寻找异常细胞. 样本可以确认或排除癌症.

    如果您确认患有乳腺癌, 可能需要进一步测试以评估其是否扩散. 例如, 验血, 肝脏或胸部X线超声检查.

    乳腺癌如何治疗?

    可以考虑的治疗选择包括手术, 化学疗法, 放射疗法和激素治疗. 通常将两种或更多种治疗方法结合使用.

    • 外科手术: 保乳手术或受累乳房的切除取决于肿瘤的大小.
    • 放射疗法: 使用聚焦于癌组织的高能射线束的治疗方法. 这杀死癌细胞, 或阻止癌细胞繁殖. 它主要用于除外科手术.
    • 化学疗法: 通过使用杀死癌细胞的抗癌药物治疗癌症, 或阻止他们繁殖
    • 激素治疗: 某些类型的乳腺癌会受到“女性”的影响’ 激素雌激素, 可以刺激癌细胞分裂和繁殖. 降低这些激素水平的疗法, 或阻止他们工作, 通常用于乳腺癌患者.

    治疗有多成功?

    当癌症仍然很小时,那些被诊断出的人的前景最好, 并没有传播. 早期通过外科手术切除肿瘤可能会带来良好的治愈机会.

    常规X线乳腺摄影给年龄在20岁以下的妇女。 50 和 70 意味着在早期阶段会诊断和治疗更多的乳腺癌.
