I am just curious to know if you are left or right handed and which side did you have breast cancer?

Thanks for helping my curiosity!

Susie, did you ever or did anyone here figure out how many were left or right?  The percentages of us on here?  That would be an interesting fact I think.

It is a "cute" survey.  I don't think that a renegade breast cancer cell that looses it's program cares if it's the right or left of anything.

Though people have various names for the "C" word, many here call it the beast, it is really just a renegade cell that has gone amok and it can happen anywhere in the body.

For what it's worth it is my left breast and I am right handed.

I enjoy your posts too Susie!  The breast cancer was in my left breast and I am right handed. 

I always wanted to be ambidexterous, or however you spell it. 

My husband does certain things with one hand and then the other, but, can do so many things with both.  What a marvel he is.  lol

Thanks!

Your husband is very lucky to be ambidexterous and never has to fear loosing the hand that does everything.

To bad we were not all born that way.  I did crack my thumb once and I was surprise how quickly the other fingers adjusted to the lost, it did learn or I thought it how to do the job of thumb.

Best,

Doris

Susie,

I too had the same type of curiosity...I didn't think it had to do with being left or right handed...My curiosity was about which breast was larger as to which side was the cancer?  Many women I have spoken with - answered the left side was larger and that was the side they had the cancer...

But, to answer your question, my cancer was on my left breast and I'm right handed...
