    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Went in for a dr visit after 3 days of pelvic pain, I thought I maybe had an infection of some sort. They did a CT scan and found a 14 cm mass and said I might have cancer.

    I was not expecting the tumor to be identified as malignant. The surgeon had thought it would be borderline.

    Prophylactic Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had this procedure due to my BRCA2 diagnosis. I was told that I had an 85% chance of developing breast cancer. I did not want to face cancer a 2nd time!
