I'm, so sorry to hear about Kylie's illness, I'm a very big fan of her.I hope she gets well soon. My dad had terminal cancer and he survived so I'm sure he will be ok soon.Still she so young and beautiful it's not fair for this to happen to her.
Pamela Sanchez, NY, USA

You're true blue Aussie stock Kylie, and we know you're going to make a full recovery and beat this disease. You're a typical Australian battler, and if you can conquer the world's music scene, conquering cancer is something you're going to do too.
Leisa, Brisbane, Australia

You were absolutely amazing
Amanda and Shannon O' Keefe, Cavan
I was so happy to hear that Kylie will be okay, this was the best news I received so far. Kylie come back to us, we miss you.

Here in Spain we love you and send you our best wishes. We are sure you get well soon.

I have been a fan of your music from the beginning. My grandmother and Aunt both had breast cancer. My aunt had the same type as you andcaught it early-she went through treatment and has made a complete recovery!
Stacia Petri, Pawtucket, RI USA

I was really upset to hear that you have breast cancer, Kylie. I am a huge fan, you and your music have had a huge impact in my life. I really hope that you get better soon.
Alexa Stock, USA

Why is this a topic for Have Your Say? Thousands of women suffer from breast cancer - is Miss Minogue really that special?
Chris, Cambridge, UK

I was at your gig in March. I don't have to tell you that it was an excellent 'show girl'. My sister in-law aged 30 has been diagnosed with breast cancer and currently going through treatment. I know what you and your family are going through. Be positive, be strong. Thinking of you
Karen Byrne, Winchburgh, Scotland

My thoughts are you with you Kylie at this highly emotional time. I too was diagnoised with Breast Cancer in January 2005 at the age of 34. Keep strong and a positive mental attitude. It really helps. You will make it and recover - just like I will.
Alison Short, Bristol, UK

Get well soon Kylie. I was shocked and saddened you hear you're suffering from breast cancer. I can remember receiving your first album, on vinyl, as a Christmas present back in 1988. And 17 years later, I'm still listening to your music. Concentrate on getting better now.
Emily,

I was truly saddened and shocked to hear of Kylie's breast cancer. I went to see you 17 years ago in the Point Depot in Dublin, you were my first concert and truly amazing. I was delighted to be able to bring my little 8 year old daughter to the Point Depot on 9th April 2005 to see you, You were absolutely amazing and my daughter totally adores you. Positivity is the key!!
Amanda and Shannon O' Keefe, Cavan

Kylie, Honey, don't worry about the tour, just worry about getting well! I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
Rani, Washington State, USA

I saw your concert at Earls Court on the 1st of May with my dad. We both had never seen you in concert before but we both always loved your music. I was very sad when I heard that you had breast cancer. I hope you get better soon.

Every case concerning young people getting cancer is a sad story, especially if the person is young like Kylie. Feel better Kylie, and beat this disease.
Ronny, Israel

Kylie, I am so sorry about the sad news. I have tickets to your Showgirl tour and I will be delighted, and I am sure everyone else in Australia will be, to know that you are back to your old Aussie self when you get on that stage and show us the true Aussie inside of you! You are definitely my idol and I hope you have a speedy recovery and I hope you enjoy your stay in Australia.
Kayla, Melbourne, Australia

While the media attention is on Kylie, we should not forget all the other ordinary people who also fight this battle and rely on the limited resources of the NHS to save them.
Paul Collier, London

I hope that like me, you have caught it early
Debbie, Preston, Lancs, UK
I too was diagnosed with breast cancer at 36. It's a terrible shock and now is the difficult time, once you have more information and your treatment is decided it is easier to cope. I hope that like me, you have caught it early. It certainly gave me a better, more positive outlook on life. Best wishes to you and those around you.
Debbie, Preston, Lancs, UK

Kylie, I wish you all the best at this difficult time. The news came as a complete shock considering I had seen you only in March putting on all the glitz and glam in Glasgow. But you are a strong vibrant young woman and I know that you will come through this will all the love and support that you have from family, friends, fans and of course Olivier. Wishing you all the best and lots of love and hugs.

Kylie, be positive and be strong. My younger brother has cancer at 24-years-old he has come through it after three lots of treatment. I feel for you and understand what you are going through, best wishes.
Caroline Enevoldsen, Northern Ireland

I saw Kylie in concert at G A Y in London a few months back. What a fantastic woman. She has so much devotion and respect for her public. You have never let us down and we won't let you down either. All my thoughts are with you and I can't wait to see you again soon.
Anthony, London, UK

I wish Kylie all the best in her treatment, I wish all women well because I have seen first hand the trauma that can occur to women who have breasts removed. My only sigh of relief is that nothing has happened to Kylie's "cute little bum".

Remain the strong person you are, believe in yourself and accept some of the many offers of help you will receive
Karen, Runcorn
From personal experience I know the trauma that you and your family are going to go through. Remain the strong person you are, believe in yourself and accept some of the many offers of help you will receive. I'll be praying for you and your family and friends. You have been through so much already that this is yet another cruel blow but Kylie you can and will beat this. With love and best wishes.
Karen, Runcorn

Me and my mates are all thinking of you Kylie - we had an excellent time in Glasgow and Earls Court at the fabulous Showgirl tour. You're young, you're strong - I have every confidence you'll be fine. But we'll all be sending our love until we hear the all-clear.

We were looking forward to seeing her in Hong Kong, but we wish her the very best for a quick recovery.
Julie Harries, Hong Kong

I was shocked to hear the news and my thoughts and wishes for a healthy recovery are with Kylie and her family at this time. To see that Kylie has made a statement saying how sorry she is to disappoint her Australia audiences shows what a true professional she is and how much she thinks of her fans even in times like these. Be assured Kylie that we too adore you and are all thinking of you now.
Stevo, Bristol, UK

Us loyal fans are all behind you whatever happens
John, London, UK

John, London, UK

I'm shocked at Kylie's news, cancer doesn't care what you do, what you earn or who you are - what on earth can we do to beat this horrible disease? Kylie is a shiny wee star who has the ability to brighten up any dull Glasgow day, I'm sure it won't be long before she is back to brighten up so many dull days!
Carrie , Glasgow

I am so sorry to hear of your sad news. My thoughts are with you at this time, as are all other fans world wide. I feel privileged to have seen you at Earls Court the week before last. I hope that you make a quick and full recovery. Love as always .

Hannah, Falmouth Cornwall

I would just like to wish Kylie all the best and a fast recovery. She is not alone, as a small proportion of young women get breast cancer - my grandmother was one of them. She then went on to have my mum and lived a long and happy life. So don't lose hope - there can be life after cancer. All my best wishes.
Alison Crawford, Leeds, UK

Good Luck with the treatment, hope all goes well and you're back singing soon.
Peter, Wigan

I must say I'm a bit stunned by this - you don't tend to think of someone so young and vibrant getting something so insidious. Get well soon Kylie, there's lots of people rooting for you!
Paul, Chichester, UK

The world looks forward to seeing you fit and well in the not so distant future
Darryl Evans, Porthcawl, UK
I just simply wanted to send my thoughts and best wishes to Kylie on hearing the news of her illness. I've been a lifelong fan and admirer of her music and her zest for life.

I hope you have a full recovery, and take some time off to relax also. May you find some silver lining in this dark cloud of an experience.
I Ames, Seattle, USA

Don't worry, this will be just a blip, you will soon be on the road to recovery and although it may change your outlook on life (sometimes for the better) you will still be the same person. Keep smiling and good luck.
Clare, London

I would like to tell Kylie that she'll get through this. She needs to remain positive and strong throughout, and although it is easier said than done, she has the support of her family, friends and indeed the whole world behind her.
Kate White, Liverpool, UK

Dear Kylie, So sorry to learn you have to fight the battle against breast cancer so personally now. Being a cancer survivor myself (had to face a similar thing when just 28) and having a mother who is in her 4th year of remission of breast cancer I know only too well how scary and frightening things can be.
Edith Hall, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for such a fantastic person

Kylie, with your healthy lifestyle and strong psyche, I am sure you will win this battle against the rogue disease. You will prove to be an example of courage and victory to the hundreds of other women, who suffer from the same illness. God be with you, Kylie.
Dr Ketan Rao, Goa, India

It does not seem right that someone so young and vibrant can have cancer. I could not believe it when I heard it on the news this morning. Kylie is a fighter as she has proven with her career and it will be no time before she is in the clear.
Danielle Abbott, Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire

She will be a huge support and inspiration for all those with breast cancer

I want Kylie to know that her fans really love her, totally support her and we will do anything we can to raise awareness.

Colin, United Kingdom, Belfast

I wish Kylie a speedy recovery. I was very painful to here that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I am sure she will come out of it stronger. She comes across as a wonderful lady and she deserves only the very best in life. God bless her.
Patricia, Mumbai, India

Kylie has been an inspiration to so many of us growing up seeing her on Neighbours and then watching her singing career grow. It is very sad news but I'm sure that she will pull through. The support that people across the world have shown is amazing and hopefully this will give her even more strength and determination and we will see her back on the stage very soon.
Nikki, Lancaster

Gorgeous lady, hope you get better soon. Wishing you all the best during your treatment.

May you beat this horrible disease.
Brian Mora, Joplin Missouri USA

I could not believe the news when I heard, it was like finding out about a member of my family. I have been a big fan since Neighbours.

You will beat this and come back better that ever. My thoughts are with you.
Steve Baker, Peterborough, England

You're in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy and complete recovery.

This tragedy is repeating itself in thousands of households everywhere
Debbie Kings, Nottingham, UK
1 in 9 women in the UK will get breast cancer. This tragedy is repeating itself in thousands of households everywhere. It is rare in younger women, but is on the increase. I wish Kylie and all the other young women who got this terrible disease today all the best.
Debbie Kings, Nottingham, UK

She is a fighter through and through, she will overcome this physical tragedy. She is in our prayers.
Antoinette, USA

This stunning and beautiful lady will undoubtedly be strong and fight this awful cancer. She doesn't deserve this and may God be with her all the way.
Emily, Dorset

You can and will beat it! Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Hurry on back to see us as soon as possible. We love you!
Marilyn, Potters Bar, UK

I hope the best care and recovery for you Kylie. Thank you for getting me through my rough times in my life with your never-ending enthusiasm, music and presence.

God bless you and your family.

Her high profile will raise the issue of breast cancer even more
Rob, Dubai
I was saddened to hear Kylie's news but in a way her high profile will raise the issue of breast cancer even more. I wish her all the best and a speedy recovery. It also goes to show that fame and wealth does not leave one immune to such life trials.
Rob, Dubai

Keep the smile on your face and all the love in your heart, be strong and brave and tackle this hurdle in your life as you have all others with a positive mind. I have nursed breast cancer ladies and I am sure with all the right treatment and support that you will get you will be doing what you do best once again soon being a true showgirl. Lots of love, thought and prayers to you.
Wendy Thompson, Lincoln

Just travelled to Manchester recently to see your Showgirl tour - it was out of this world. I remember that first day when Lenny showed up in Neighbours and look where you are now - keep going girl you will beat this. My thoughts are with you.
Karen, Livingston, Scotland

The ultimate showgirl. I've been a fan for 18 years. In that time we have all seen her ups and downs, her loves, her music which is just a tiny part of who she is. She has so much talent and so much to give. She is the ultimate showgirl, the person myself and I'm sure millions of others look up to. My thoughts are with Kylie and her family. Get well soon Kylie Ann Princess Minogue.
Catherine Bracken, Aintree, Liverpool

Matt Severson, Los Angeles, California

As a Canadian, I have always wished our pop musicians and actors could have style and attitude that demonstrates national pride while paying tribute to the rich culture of our mother country, England. The Australians do this so well, and Kylie is the best at it. She is a classic in every sense of the word. Best wishes Kylie - get well soon.
Sebastian Stoker, Toronto, Canada

I was shocked when I found out Kylie had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have been a fan since she was in Neighbours. She is a lovely person and a fantastic artist. My family have been affected by breast cancer. My heart goes out to her and I send her my love and prayers to her and her family.
Linda Abbiss, Bournemouth, Great Britain

When I heard the news this morning, it was like hearing that a member of my family had cancer. I cannot believe it has happened to a star I have followed through my teens and beyond, and only just saw last week at Earl's Court. I feel shivers just thinking about it. Kylie, my thoughts are with you. You are in the best place for treatment. Fight it with all you can (and I know you will). Frances
Frances Cosway, London (originally Melbourne)

Having grown up with Kylie as a role model through my life, it came as a big shock to read the news this morning. I'm glad that she is currently with her family as that is the best place to be for a speedy recovery. I lost my Dad last year to cancer and know only too well how important the support of a family unit can be. I'm sure with it being found early it means that she will go on to make a speedy recovery. My love and thoughts are with you Kylie.
Heather , Hull, England

Russell Hyldon, Macclesfield, UK

Kylie has been in my life for 18 years and has given me so much joy over that time. I wish there was a way that us Kylie fans could show how much we are thinking about her and to also show her how much we love her. Kylie keep positive and you know I will be thinking about you
Russell Hyldon, Macclesfield, UK

I hope Kylie can gain strength in this awful time in knowing that she is loved all the world over for being a genuine role model, and lovely person. I am sure she will surmount this problem with grace and dignity, and I will be waiting to hear that she is fully recovered very soon.

If anybody has what it takes to beat this condition it is La Minogue
Jonathan Hastings, Muswell Hill, London
This news just totally knocked me for six this morning. It is so sad that Kylie is having to face this, as it is when anybody is struck down by cancer, and I can only seek solace in the fact that she is young, fit, strong-minded and a real fighter. If anybody has what it takes to beat this condition it is La Minogue. My thoughts are with her and her loved ones.
Jonathan Hastings, Muswell Hill, London

I was so shocked when I heard the news this morning. It seems to happen to the best of people. Kylie is strong-willed and a healthy woman and she is likely to pull through.

Karen, Nottingham, UK

I'm a huge fan of Anastacia, and it was so hard when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. No one deserves to go through the same and I really hope Kylie will get better as soon as possible. We believe in you Kylie! If someone ever feels they need strength or feel down, listening to Anastacia's and Kylie's music will definitely get them in a better mood! I'll pray for her! She is strong, just like Anastacia and I'm sure she will get through this with help from her fans, and her family.
Solveig Helen, Arendal, Norway

Rocked to my very foundations by this news. My thoughts are with you all the way Kylie, you can beat this. I've grown up with your music and won't give up on you now, as I'm sure you won't for your family, friends and fans. Love to you, always.

Good luck and we'll see you again soon...

A true star in every sense of the word. Eighteen years of a journey shared and we've barely touched on your story of which there is still much, much more to tell. Tough times ahead perhaps, but there's absolutely no doubt that you will get through this. You're a fighter. I wouldn't expect any less from our beloved girl. Kylie, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. Make no mistake, the Manolos and feathers are perched and poised stage right for your speedy return to good health.

Good Luck Kylie, she has a battle ahead but she will be ok I hope. I have just celebrated the news of my all clear from urethral Cancer. Good Luck
Greg Edgings, Wareham, Dorset

For the first time in my life, I had finally got tickets to watch Kylie live. I got my flight ticket and I was so happy to take a break from work to fly over to Sydney. My friends got me this as an early birthday present. Both my parents have cancer and last week I spoke at the National Cancer Society Awareness event. When I heard the news today, I didn't know what to feel. As long as she has a healthy recovery, I know my dream of seeing her will come true some other time. Kylie, you will spin back round!
Edwin Sumun, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I will be praying for you. Don't forget God will help you and you will get well soon Kylie!
Zehra, Istanbul, Turkey

Kylie, you're a fabulous woman and you're a true Aussie battler - you'll beat this, no problem! Take heart in knowing how much we all love you and wish you all the very best for a speedy recovery - let's see you flicking those heels on stage again soon, Showgirl!
Paz, London, UK

It's the horrid news no one ever wants to hear and I truly hope that Kylie will pull through. Let this be a lesson to all us women to check ourselves regularly and remind everyone how real the threats of cancer are. It is always far to easy to believe it will never be you and not to bother to examine yourself very often (the same goes for men). With treatments of today catching it early as in Kylie's case provides so much more hope of a perfect recovery. Best wishes and get well soon.
Alex, Cambridge

You'll be fine! Thank God it was detected early! All the best! Think positive!
Isabel, Brussels, Belgium

She's such a wonderful performer and missed very dearly. I hope she gets better soon as the pop world won't be the same without her. My thoughts are with her and her family.
