I found a lump & went for a mammo. It wasn't suspicious & approx. 6 months later, I went for another mammo because I just knew something wasn't right & there were two lumps or areas of suspicion. I also had pain in my breast & cancer isn't supposed to hurt. Biopsy & lumpectomy both performed & sure enough, one of the masses was cancerous. It's over except for the medication, I'm doing well & Hopefully that's it. It's been almost three years.A positive attitude goes a long way at least it has for me.

Please follow your woman's intuition-it sure helped me. So did my cat. Newton started sleeping by my side-the one with the lump, just before I was diagnosed until after my treatment ended. As though he knew. What a cat!
