lumpectomy or mastectomy - Snooks

Decision Point Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 11, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

As soon as my doctor diagnosed me with breast cancer, he gave me a stack of literature and told me to go home and think about it. What was there to think about; I wanted the tumor out and I wanted it done that day! However, I went home and discussed it with my husband and immediatey knew I wanted a mastectomy which was performed two days later. My only regret was not having the other breast removed at the same time, but had it removed one year later.
