I was diagnosed with stage 3 Lobular Breast Cancer in March 2000 after 14 months of trying to get doctors to tell me what the lump was. They kept saying "there is something going on, but we don't know what it is." Unfortunatly, Lobular cancer was not dectectable with a mamogram. The MRI's were not read correctly, nor was the ultrasound. I finally found a great surgeon who knew what it was right away. I had a double mastectomy, chemo and radiation. I am happy to say I have been cancer free since Feb. 2001. I had a wonderful support system with my husband, family, friends and co-workers.

Please, have your mamograms, but if you feel something in your breast, don't stop until the doctor can tell you for sure what it is. You must be your own advocate.
