I am 43 and was married when I got breast cancer 12 years ago. Because of numerous recurrences and surgeries, besides a bilateral mastectomy, my entire chest is scarred and discolored from radiation.
When I was married, it wasn't a concern, but now that I am single, I don't know what to do. I don't wear prosthetics, just blouses. It's not apparent that I don't have breasts until I mention it. But how do I mention it and when. I'd like to start dating again, but frankly this is really, really difficult.

I'm really sorry about everythign you've been through- uckily, I think as you get past your 20's, looks become less of a concern, but either way, I'm sure that you're attractive enough for that not to be a huge concern to a future partner, a lot of woemn have various issues which I think we exaggerate within our own minds- yoours is obviously a lot more serious than most but if any man you meet and enter a relationship with is worth your time, it definately won't deter him from becoming intimate with you. I think if the situation arises, however, that tellign him beforehand will make it a lot easier for both of you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx1
