Wow! Where do I start. Now I know why they call cancer the silent killer. I didn't even know I had a problem until I found something very sore on my body. I was the size of a lemon and had spread to my lymph nodes. How the heck did that happen since I had my last mammogram in January and all this took place in July?
Be careful Ladies & Gentlemen because my oncologist says that this kind of breast cancer does not show on a mammogram. The mammogram scores only an 80% at finding all cancers. You are responsible for the other 20%. That means self exam. This has also happened to my 48 year old niece. She also had a double mascetomy in March. I was there helping to care for her little 4 year Chinese boy and all the time I had cancer myself.
My niece and her daughter just completed a 60 mile 3 day walk for breast cancer. I say Hooray for them. And thank you to all who walked.
Please remember folks--it is up to you to discover this kind of cancer yourselves.
More up dates later.
