Investigations revealed that she had breast cancer.

- The cancer was in the left breast.

No matter how I tried to feel it, I didn’t feel anything.

The number of women with breast cancer in Sweden is growing every year.

It is the most common form of cancer in women, according to statistics from the Cancer Foundation.

Regular mammography screening is recommended for women aged 40-74 years.

Mari Rantanen's breast cancer was found in connection with the study.

- I thought 90 percent would survive breast cancer and I belong to that group.

"Many are afraid of research"

Now Mari Rantanen encourages others to go for research.

He has friends who dare not go because they are afraid it will happen.

- When this happened to me, I talked to everyone and said it was really important to go.

Even if you don’t have any symptoms, it may still be, as in my case, that a cancerous tumor is found.
