It was the Monday of the March Break when I first noticed the lump.
“I looked at the mirror on Monday night and saw a little line that looked like an indent to my bra, and I followed it and there was a lump at the end.”
It was very random, I rarely do self-exams because I have no known family history so I always thought I was genetically safe.
Right away, I made an appointment with the doctor and then my journey started of multiple ultrasounds, mammograms and waiting by the phone for results. On April 2nd during this crazy pandemic, I was diagnosed with DCIS and invasive breast cancer.
I needed a mastectomy because the disease was extensive in my right breast.”
