    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I found two tiny lumps right near my left nipple. When I went to the breast surgeon she said they should come out but she was 80% sure they'd be nothing. She took them out and was even more confident saying she was 95% sure they would be nothing!

    I have 2 confirmed cancers that came out with the excisional biopsy. They did an MRI and found two more VERY small spots in that breast plus two other spots on the right breast!
