You see in early 2015 after having a second mammogram done, I got a dreaded phone call. “The radiologist got your films from your base line in, and they’d like to do some more screenings.” After doing a basic film, the radiologist looked at it and then wanted a 3D image, and then a sonogram. By this time, I’m nervous…very, very nervous. With excellent bedside manner, it was explained that my tissue has changed. It’s not a mass…yet. And it could very well never become one…or it could. So for now, we watch and wait. But other women don’t get that same relief of reprieve as I did. Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. One in every eight women in the United States will be affected by this disease in her lifetime.
