Pamela

Florida
Diagnosed Age 38
"I was just 38 when diagnosed with stage 2A triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma and am thankful that I 'felt my boobies'."

"The Friday before Thanksgiving 2013 I felt a lump in my left breast while watching TV.  I wasn't doing a self-breast exam, it was itchy over the couple weeks prior and I thought it was a bruise from my dogs jumping on me all the time (I have a lot of dogs!).  Regardless, I called my doctor the following Monday and she confirmed that there was indeed a lump.  A week later I had a mammogram and ultrasound scheduled.  Then I had a biopsy done later that week and found out soon after that my lump was breast cancer. I was just 38 when diagnosed with stage 2A triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma and am thankful that I 'felt my boobies'."
