Pet sheep 'alerted British woman to cancer'


A woman from Wiltshire discovered she had cancer after her sheep butted her in the breast.

Emma Turner told BBC Radio 5 live Drive's Peter Allen "It's not a good way to get your breast cancer diagnosed."

She visited her doctor to check on the bruise received from the butts after she noticed a lump in the middle of it, and a biopsy revealed the early stages of breast cancer.

She is set to undergo a mastectomy to remove the tumour after six sessions of chemotherapy over four months.
