After some observation, I had a mammogram which then ushered me into the office of a very skilled breast surgeon. Upon initial ultra-sound, my doctor was certain – but two biopsies and a MRI later she knew that I had breast cancer. I had a ping-pong ball sized tumor on one side (ironically, despite the size, the position of it had kept it hidden until now and that is why it had not shown up in self-exams or doctor exams) and they would later determine there were several smaller tumors on the other side.  Read More...
