Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with Stage 2B Invasive Ductal Carcinoma
I had no idea that I had a walnut-sized tumor in me growing for possibly five years. I had no family history and was unaware that having dense breasts are a huge risk factor for women. A tumor shows up white on a mammogram and so does dense breasts, making it very difficult to detect cancer. Please make sure you ask for 3D mammograms and if you have dense breasts ask for additional screening, it could be life-saving!
