A woman said that playful sex with her boyfriend led to the discovery of breast cancer.
29-year-old Chloe Judd of Basingstoke, England, is grateful that her boyfriend found her lump on time so she can be treated.
Judd was diagnosed with aggressive stage two breast cancer after her boyfriend Steve Marriott, 38, felt the lump on her breast while making love.
Marriott did not want to spoil the mood so he waited until they were done having sex to point out his concern. “He said: ‘Babe, just to let you know I felt a lump,’” Judd said.
He then showed her the area of concern. Judd underwent chemotherapy, radiotherapy and a single mastectomy after her boyfriend’s shocking discovery.
Marriott stood by her side through the entire ordeal. Doctors said that Judd is lucky her boyfriend of two years found the tumor when he did as it was getting very aggressive.
The couple said that their love is stronger than ever. “I would urge other boyfriends to know their partner’s body well. It can be the difference between a positive prognosis or a less fortunate one,” Judd said.
