A HUGE Sigh Of Relief

I heard from the doc today..That is about the longest friggin wait ever.. Anyway, he told me that the lump was fibrous in nature and it was called a fibroadenoma.. It was also benign and there were no signs of cancer anywhere! He told me I needed to go out and celebrate! I read up on it after I talked to him and realized that this is probably what my mom had..If a fibroadenoma is left alone in a few years it can turn cancerous..My mother was 45 before she had her first mammogram.. This was back before it became such big deal to have mammograms..She has been cancer free now for 21 years.. I learned alot from this ordeal and how important it is to keep up with your mammograms! I will definately be having my mammograms done on a yearly basis if not sooner from now on! Prayers have been answered for sure today! Amen!

Im very releived! I am still in alot of pain, though..The doc said that they had to go about 3 inches deep to find the fibroadenoma..This fibroadenoma was not detected with a self examination or even an ultrasound..The mammogram was the only thing that picked it up! I feel very fortunate that I had the mammogram! Thanks guys for all your prayers!

I knew it! Have Faith! And great it is when we can learn something (and teach others) through all of our experiences.
I am so happy that all is ok. I have something for you though. Will drop it by the store if not today sometime this week.
