Kylie Minogue’s Breast Cancer Was Originally Misdiagnosed

April 8th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Kylie Minogue made an appearance on ‘Ellen’ yesterday, and she candidly discussed her battle with breast cancer.

She warned the aiduence that, ‘Because someone is in a white coat and using big medical instruments doesn’t necessarily mean they’re right.’

When Kylie was concerned about a lump in her breast, her first physician failed to diagnose that it was cancerous. It wasn’t until she went for another check-up that the disease was discovered.

Ellen DeGeneres is also a breast cancer survivor. She once had a mammogram that came out clear, but found a lump in her breast only a couple weeks later.

Kylie advised the audience, ‘You must follow your intuition and if you have any doubt go back again.’

The singer said later, ‘I don’t want to say that to frighten people but that’s just a fact.’

    My wife died due to her delayed diagnosis, her misdiagnosis. Three doctors for over two years told her not to worry about her breast lump. The fourth gave her less than two years to live. I want to share my story with the world so women will never ley this happen to them. My web site is, click on Maureens Goodbye clip, she will tell you!

    Im sorry William about your beautiful wife. Doctors I notice would rather misdiagnose i feel than look STUPID. They shouldn’t put that pressure on themselves and realise they are human and better to be wrong than sorry later on. Ive had a mastectomy. Not a pretty thing to be living with. STUFF the doctors. They’d change their tune if it was their HEALTH in jeopardy. Agree??

    Thank you Lisa, I need help finding the women that are sitting home today, told they did not have breast cancer but in fact do, just like Maureen. Before their breast cancer is stage 3 or 4!!! Got any ideas?
