Four years ago I went to have my routine mammogram and the radiologist noticed a shadow on the films. He compared them to the mammogram I had the year before (at the same facility) and sent me for an ultrasound. The ultrasound along with a biopsy confirmed the fact that there was cancer there. Since that day I have had a lumpectomy with a sentinel node biopsy, radiation and a hysterectomy to improve my chances of remaining cancer free. I am a survivor all because I made it a point to have an annual mammogram. I believe strongly that mammograms save lives!
