Eleven years ago, at 42, when I finally got a job with health insurance and my husband bugged me enough, I got a GYN checkup after TEN years! I had cervical cancer that had JUST become invasive and had a hysterectomy with no other treatment except HRT.What luck!
At the same time I got a baseline mammogram. ELEVEN months later another mammo and biopsy showed ductal and lobular carcinoma insitu on the left side. I opted for bilateral mastectomy because I was so afraid it would come back.
It had not become invasive, but the pathology report showed the same thing - salt and peppered (more than 20) on each side! I would have been back and I am sure the third time would not have been the charm for me! Instead, no other treatments.
Now, ten years cancer free, I get a breast MRI and pap every other year, just in case. An ounce of prevention IS worth a pound of cure!
EARLY DETECTION SAVED MY LIFE!
