Surprise--cancer behind the breast - mariet

Oh No Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on October 11, 2011 View this journey (11 Experiences)

I am so grateful I had the breast surgeon I did, because due to her experience and the grace of God, when the right breast was removed she saw an area behind it that "caused concern". She sent a tissue sample to pathology and a second type of cancer was found; one that was more aggressive & did not show up on the mammogram at all. The mastectomy was necessary--without it, the 2nd type of cancer would not have been found and would have killed me.
