finding lumps

Hi Cindi:

I found my lump during a self-exam. Monitored it through my next menstrual cycle then saw my Dr. My story is on my webpage.
My lump was small, firm and moveable. No pain or tenderness. Even my surgeon was not
expecting it to be cancerous at fine needle biopsy but it was just that.

Don't wait more than one cycle to have it checked out. You need to know exactly what it is and what your options are. It may be nothing major at all and you need to know that too.

Yes, we can and do function through chemo. Not always easy but we do get through it. I
believe that one's attitude is fundamental to just how well you get through it in conjunction with taking the best care possible of yourself.

Good Luck,
Inkblot
