Biopsy Results are Back

Just wanted to update you in regard to my biopsy results. I am officially free of cancer. The tumor is fibrous and definitely NOT cancer. This is what the doctor thought all along, but it is good to be certain about something so potentially life changing. God is good!

As some of you know, we do not have health insurance. The program I participated in that provided the testing for me is through the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. If you are able to participate or support the program in some way, it is a great cause. Funds from the annual event are used to help women such as myself get needed testing. I am thankful to have access to such a wonderful resource.

Glad to hear things turned out ok.

2 years ago, I had a similar experience. 3 lumps, no insurance. A local clinic stepped up and got me a free mammogram and biopsy.

I'm cancer free also. Just a few fibroid adenomas.

Hi! I know how it feels to get such a big relief.

I myself is under close watch for benign cysts on my breast(both) and this entails getting checked through mammogram and sonogram every 6 months since 2001. I now go to a breast oncologist and although, test results have been consistently good, I can't help but fear that one day I'll get the result that I'm dreading to hear.

best wishes!

Melissa, Brad and Sandi - Thank you!

Jen - That is wonderful! Glad you got the help you needed and you were found to be cancer free.

Juliana - Why the close watch? That has to be nerve wracking going every six months and spending the time wondering. I don't have to go back for a year. They said as long as nothing changes they just leave the lumps alone now. AMEN! Back in the day they automatically took them out. I had two in the same breast years ago that they removed. This poor boob has gone through a lot!
