I was bothered by several "cysts" in my left breast that I had drained over the years. I had one that continued to come back or have "debris" in it. Finally, I went to see a surgeon who suggested removing it surgically so that it would stop coming back!

In April 2000, I had surgery. It was removed and found to be forming pre-cancerous leisons -- which would have eventually turned into cancer. I am grateful to my surgeon -- who by the way, is a survivor herself -- she had a mastectomy and is a multiple year survivor!

My thanks and prayers go out to this surgeon -- she saved my life!
