The surgeon recommended waiting 3-4 months, and then repeating the mammogram, but I, the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, the best friend of a breast cancer survivor, and the first cousin of a breast cancer survivor, asked him to find a place in his schedule for the removal and biopsy of the lump. He encouraged me to wait and not subject myself to unnecessary surgery, but I insisted. I am convinced that that decision probably saved my life.
