Just the Facts

The woman sat in the waiting room in a nervous state.  She had found a lump in her left breast this morning in the shower and immediately called her doctor’s office.  The doctor of course was booked up for the day, but they could let her see a nurse practitioner in the afternoon.

Her name was called, and she walked to the exam room.  Each step seemed to echo through her head and put her more on edge.  She was examined and questioned by the nurse practitioner and had a couple of tests scheduled.

To her dismay she went home with no answers only more of the unknown scattered throughout her mind.  Tests would take a day or two to come back.  The doctor would call her to talk about the next step.  Now she just had to keep her imagination contained to facts and not fears.


One of the most important things with breast cancer is early detection… early detection is key in ALL cancers. Know your own body, do regular self exams and see a doctor if there is anything you question… it will not go away on it’s own. For more information see BreastCancer.Org
