Testing and diagnosis – Deann


Deann underwent testing for several years before the breast cancer was found.


I had my first mammogram in 2009 and at time everything was ok. And then I also had the spot compression in 2009 and everything was okay. When I went back in 2010 and had the follow-up mammogram a year later I got recalled for spot compression again and when I had my spot compression in 2010, instead of doing the right side, they went and did the left side and I kind of felt that there was some errors made in my diagnosis. I just didn’t bother to follow-up on it but I felt that in 2010, I should have probably had the lumpectomy. I may have saved myself from having a mastectomy because it just got bigger and bigger.
