Or, just me stepping onto my soapbox.
Here's the thing to remember: Early detection saves lives! I can't stress it enough. I didn't explain it in my last post, but my mammogram looked absolutely fine that day. It was the ultrasound that showed something. It was too small to feel and not visible on the mammogram. In retrospect, a sad day turned out to be my lucky day. I caught it early.
Please, please, please ask for both a mammogram and ultrasound, especially if you fall into any high risk categories. This is my message and I'm sticking to it. Shouting it out loud for all to hear.
OK, that's it. Back to your regularly scheduled life. Oh, and if you have an early detection story, I'd love to hear it. They make me happy.
