I had never heard of Stage "0" cancer until my annual mammogram in 2008! The computer found some cells in two areas that were suspicious looking. A computer-driven biopsy showed these cells were malignant DCIS cells. I had a lumpectomy followed by radiation therapy. The pathology report from the surgery showed NO EVIDENCE of cancer cells. How was this possible? All of the cells had been removed during the biopsy! I am still in shock over this! My oncologist was just as surprised. My surgeon made sure that I understood EXACTLY what was going on here. I found it incredible. I am now looking forward to my 2009 annual mammogram. I encourage every female I know to seek out a digital imagery mammogram. It was my salvation and could be yours too.
