Gran Jo is back­ing it

Josephine Tay­lor, from Nairn, is urg­ing peo­ple to be aware of the signs and symp­toms of breast can­cer and get checked if they have any con­cerns, fol­low­ing her di­ag­no­sis in Au­gust 2015.

The 73-year-old grand­mother of two had no­ticed one of her nip­ples had be­come in­verted and went straight to her GP but she never thought it could be a sign of breast can­cer.

The GP checked Josephine’s breasts but could not find any lumps. She was sent for a mam­mo­gram where lumps were dis­cov­ered that couldn’t be seen or felt.

Later in Au­gust, Josephine had surgery to re­move the whole breast and lymph nodes. Luck­ily, the can­cer had not spread to the nodes so she was given the all clear.
