So important to do self-exams

In the spring of 1999, I discovered a dimple on my right breast. I had had my mammogram earlier, which indicated calcifications that the doctor wanted to keep an eye on. Each day when I showered I checked to see if there was anything unusual to report to him. When this dimple appeared, I called the doctor immediately. He sent me for a biopsy and it came back positive. I had a lumpectomy the day after my 61st birthday and have been cancer-free for ten years now. I was one of the "lucky" ones because it was caught so early. What a lot of women do not take seriously is that it is very important to report anything unusual to your doctor immediately. If I had waited, who knows what might have been. I thank your organization for keeping women aware. Thank you.
