Yearly mammograms save lives

Last August my annual mammogram showed a change so I was called back for an ultra sound, then a biopsy. The tumor was so small that the doctor could not feel it and the biopsy took most of it. The surgeon who did the biopsy told me that I had breast cancer and that his nurse would be in to schedule a complete mastectomy and removal of all lymph nodes. That sent me to my family doctor who referred me to another surgeon for a second opinion. As a result, after an MRI, I underwent a lumpectomy, removal of only 2 sentinal nodes and 5 days of Mammosite radiation, 2 treatments per day. I am taking Aromasin because the tumor was estrogen receptive but life is good and I am blessed that the tumor was found early.
