I am a survivor! 5 yrs. ago I went to the obygn to have a pap smear. he suggested I have a mamogram early cause my grandmom had just lost her left breast. They found cancer in my left breast. DCIS stage 0 so I was lucky. I did have 3 lumpectomies and radiation so I am left with a smaller left breast. I wondered for the longest time whether to have my breast removed and i chose not to but I am unhappy with the way my breast looks now but I am ok now.
