Controversial Whitencious manager, Dencia, took to Instagram to recount how she removed a breast lump at the age of 12, which according to her was the first time she heard about cancer.
Dencia who urged women to be their sister’s keeper, revealed that the surgery left her with a keloid scar for several years and she just discovered lately that it has gone. Read her post below;
When I was 12 going on 13, I was seating in my dorm room in Cpc Bali (Cameroon) when an older woman who was abt 18 “Belinda”was talking her breast lump removal surgery,My skinny ass had big boobies & as I heard the story, I immediately touched my breasts & realized my right breast had something extra in it,I went to the nurse who sent me home immediately.
I’m lucky to be raised by a grandma who was very hands on with my health, things went so quickly & I was ready for surgery with Dr Ashu in Yaounde, Cameroon.
When the surgery was done it was insecure cuz two drs operated on me at the same time Nose,throat & boobies
The next thing was analyzing the bulge for cancerous cells, Yop my first time hearing abt cancer, I remember taking the big ass lump 2 the lab & it was analyzed, thank God it was just a big ass lump.
I write this cuz a lot of young women like me in boarding schools away from their parents want older women like Belinda to tell their story so young women like me can understand & actions is taken fast.A lot of women don’t get lucky, some end up with cancerous lump which can turn into CANCER. U are never too young & never too old, let’s our sister’s keeper, I was just a curious young woman, a lot of women aren’t that curious.
P.S I wound up with a keloid scar for several years & I noticed last night it was totally gone, u can’t even tell I had this surgery which is super mad, I was treating it is going to stretch mark lotion from whitenicious & flaking it & it’s completely gone which is rare. Thank God
This was a random picture that inspired me to tell this story,wasn’t taken with the purpose for this.
Had my first mammogram & wasn’t even 30
