No one expects to hear she has breast cancer two months after turning 30. I didn’t.
I danced flamenco, exercised frequently, was neither overweight nor a smoker -- and I was only 30! How could this happen to me?
My unexpected breast cancer diagnosis
After feeling a second of pain -- a small pinch -- in my left breast, I noticed a large bump. I was in shock, scared. I reached out to my OB-GYN right away.
The Breast Center business hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
