    Oh No (Misdiagnosed): I found a lump after I was scheduled for a biopsy on another area of my breast. When I asked the ultrasound tech to check the lump I could feel I was told there was nothing there. Six months later at a followup mammo they found the same lump that I had told them about 6 months before and it was cancer.

      I pray your treatment path is moving along. Sorry the delay in diagnosis. I am going to speak up to all about Early Diagnosis. (not your fault) I went to my Dr. 3 times in less than a year about a lump I felt. He felt it each time and said he was certain it was "only" bone. It was a tumor located on muscle wall. :( So, finally diagnosis made and treatment has begun. I have to have chemo first; then surgery; then radiation. Just so we all reach our Goal - HEALED of the cancer - for good. Hope you're doing well. Jan in FL
