Did You Know?

Although it’s rare, men can also get breast cancer. 1 out of every 100 breast cancers diagnosed in the United States is found in a man. The most common types are invasive ductal carcinoma and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which is the presence of abnormal cells inside the lining of the ducts in the breast and doesn’t spread to other tissues in the breast. DCIS is considered the earliest form of breast cancer.

The most common symptoms of breast cancer in men are:

  • A lump or swelling in the breast.

  • Redness or flaky skin in the breast.

  • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.

  • Nipple discharge.

  • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.

Pink Divas Breast Cancer Survivor's Beauty Event 2022_41.jpg

My name is Tennille Smith, I am 47yrs old. My journey began in April of 2021. Right before my 45th birthday. I was diagnosed with stage 2 invasive carcinoma breast cancer. It's a very aggressive cancer. I finished my last chemo session October 27, 2021.

November 9th , 2021 I was rushed to the hospital, because the tumor in my breast had spread to my brain. After undergoing brain surgery, two months later I had a Double Mastectomy.

Along with many other surgeries. I am a Christian woman, and not only am I an advocate for Christ, I am an advocate for cancer survivors all over the world. I have inspired, encouraged, and uplifted many women and men through my journey! I am still in the Fight! Thriving and surviving ! I pack a mighty punch! My faith is strong & cancer picked the WRONG GIRL!!
