At age 43, my mom found a lump in her right breast. She insisted it was just a cyst, and didn’t want to go to the doctor. My sisters and I made an appointment for her, and after much discussion, she agreed to go. It was cancer. She was lucky to only need a lumpectomy and radiation. She is now 67, and has been cancer free since the procedure. But what would have been the outcome if she continued to ignore the lump?
