one step ahead of the game

This notice in the mail last week brought a wry smile to my face.

mammogram notice

On a serious note, it’s quite possible that the breast cancer was on its slow grow at the time of my last mammogram which came back ‘clear’.

As this particular tumour was very close to the chest muscle wall, my surgeon had difficulty finding it on the mammogram photos taken during the diagnosis phase, and referred to the ultrasound for his information.

Mammograms are not a substitute for regular self-examination. Just saying.
