The prospect of being diagnosed with breast cancer is something one in eight women in the UK have to face. And Coronation Street will be tackling the subject in upcoming episodes, when Mary Taylor finds a lump.
Usually known for providing comic relief in the ITV soap, Mary (Patti Clare) will be involved in poignant scenes next week when she confides in her friend Erica Holroyd (Clare King) that she has found a lump in her breast.
They go together to Mary’s doctor’s appointment, where she is examined and told that there is nothing to worry about. However, Mary’s instinct tells her something’s not right and she insists that she has a scan. Just what is playing on her mind?
