    no much

    Decision Point

    After my initial biopsy I moved to Moffitt Cancer center in Tampa. They gave my another biopsy and a CT scan and untrasound and FNA of left arm lyphnodes. So I started out with one lump and needing a lupmectomy to another spot 3 1/2in from the first and cancer in the lyphnodes. So mastectomy and removal of all lymphnodes in left axilla
