The Importance of Self Exams

In June of 2006 I had a clean mamogram. While doing my monthly self exam the following month I found a lump, it was malignant. I had a lumpectomy, chemo, radiation followed by 1 year of herceptin infusions. Today I am cancer free. It scares me think how different things would have turned out had I not done that self exam and just waited for my next yearly mamogram! Ladies - Please do those monthly self exams!
