A mother has told BBC 5 live that her baby helped spot her breast cancer after he refused to be breastfed.

Sarah Boyle first noticed a lump in her right breast in January 2013, but was told it was a cyst by her GP.

She was later referred for a hospital scan and a biopsy by her GP. Two weeks later she was diagnosed with grade 2 triple negative breast cancer.

Speaking to Adrian Chiles, Sarah said that her prognosis is looking good and she hopes to make a full recovery.

"I'm doing really well to be honest. I get on with it because I'm a mother."
