Back in early November I went in for my yearly mammogram. It came back with a "suspicious" spot. I then went in for a second mammogram which further confirmed something suspicious. I then went in for a needle biopsy. Not terribly painful but still pretty uncomfortable and left me pretty bruised. After a long week of waiting I found out today that it was benign, no cancer! They do still want me to see a breast surgeon for a consultation but I finally feel like I can breathe again. I am especially thankful this Thanksgiving! I also realize how fortunate I am to have a great healthcare plan though my employer. Everything is covered, and I only had to pay 3, $15 copays. I did call my insurer every step of the way before each visit to be sure I was staying in-network and I have to say they were incredibly helpful. My primary care doctor is awesome as well as the office staff and I am so thankful to have such a great network of caregivers. Ladies, never put off those yearly mammograms. There is no cancer in my family. I am low risk, I don't smoke or drink much and am overall pretty healthy. You just never know.
