217: Let’s Talk About Boobs with Dr Lea Freeman


It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month (October) and to motivate you all to check your breasts and so we can all learn more, we’ve interviewed our good friend Dr Lea Freeman, GP and Senior Breast Clinician. 


Stuff we talked about…

  • 1 in 8 Australian women are diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Symptoms of breast cancer, if we can notice earlier we have more opportunity of early detection and survival.
  • How to do a self-examination and why you should be doing this every single month.
  • We also asked a bunch of random questions at the very end of the episode. Questions that we thought were kind of dumb for the podcast… silly us for thinking they were dumb! Stuff like, does the size of your boobs impact breast cancer risk, do breast implants increase your risk and do bras cause breast cancer?

PLEASE  share this episode with just one other woman in your life. Awareness saves lives.

We are so grateful for what we learned during this episode With Dr Lea Freeman and we want every woman to have this opportunity.
