Don't beat yourself up about not going to the Dr, nellie!
Just make sure you take care of yourself from here on out.
Thanks for asking about my health. My cancer was caught at stage II (2 tumors in the left breast, no metastasis or lymph node involvement) which is early and very treatable. That was 2 yrs ago. Unfortunately, I've had a nasty recurrence and it has spread to my lung, liver and back. I just learned that a few wks ago. I am now stage IV and undergoing chemo, but I should be fine in a few months.
The medical community is having a difficult time with breast cancer in women in the their 20s b/c the cancer behaves differently and has different characteristics from cancers in post-menopausal women. I was diagnosed at 25, I'm 27 now.
I think the important thing that people should know about cancer is that it isn't a death sentence. I have to go through some pretty harsh treatments, but I'm going to be fine. Take care of yourself and post back when you learn more about your lump.
I'll be thinking of you!
