I noticed a very slight dimple, and just knew that something was wrong. The Dr.'s did not see what I saw and could not feel anything unusual. They did not think it was anything to worry about. I scheduled a mammogram, and it showed a suspicious spot. I immediately had an ultrasound, followed by a biopsy. They found two separate tumors, and 4 other suspicous spots. Within two weeks I had a bi-lateral mastectomy. I was only 44 when I found out, and there isn't a single case of breast cancer in my family history. I am so thankful for the availability of mammograms and screening. I am almost one year out from my diagnosis, and doing well.
