I am a recent breast cancer survivor, diagnosed with Triple Negative BC in late January of this year. About a month prior to knowing about the tumor, I seemed to be surrounded by a foul odor. Soooo paranoid about the odor, I was constantly asking my friends and family if they smelled the odor too...no one did. After I started chemo, the odor disappeared. I never really associated the cancer with the strange smells. I had a bilateral mastectomy in July of this year, and am now cancer free. About 4 days ago, the smell came back. It seems like it's coming from my body, but I am clean!! LOL! My husband doesn't smell anything around or on me, and neither does anyone else. I've never heard of cancer having a "smell", and it's possible I'm just paranoid about everything now...anyone have any thoughts or ideas?
