Victoria Derbyshire's breast cancer video diary

BBC journalist and presenter Victoria Derbyshire was diagnosed with breast cancer in July, and had a mastectomy last month.

She decided to record a video diary with her thoughts after surgery to try to help demystify the treatment.

After surgery she said: "Today I had a mastectomy. I feel all right, I can't believe it."

The full version of Victoria's video diary can be seen on Monday 12 October at 09:15 BST on BBC Two, BBC News Channel and online.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:15-11:00 BST on BBC Two and BBC News Channel.
