My mother called crying yesterday saying that yesterday at the Dr. they found a lump. When I in town during thanksgiving she had a clear mammmogram. She is trying to get an ultrasound appt asap but we're obviously hoping its nothing(hoping its a benign lump as my childhood friend had a few yrs ago). If it is cancerous, is 9 mos relatively early detection. Plus I thought breast cancer probability lowered if you had a hysterectomy?
