Out of the Blue Diagnosis: Breast Cancer 


I wasn't thinking about having breast cancer when I saw the postcard and booked an appointment for a routine (every two years) mammogram. 

True, I'd been having a bit of pain in my left chest area, but I attributed it to indigestion. As in, it seemed to come and go. 

Even when I got a call telling me I needed to come for another mammogram on my left breast and an ultrasound, I wasn't worried. I'd had a cyst years before, and just assumed this was another one.   

So imagine my surprise when the doctor told me I needed a biopsy. 

And that it would be scheduled for the following Wednesday, just four days before my husband and I were booked to fly to Newfoundland for a three-week holiday.
