Thu Jul 10, 2014 09:19 AM
With a long family history of breast cancer, I contracted it at the age of 76, much later than any of my family members. I chose a bi-lateral mastectomy and feel I have done the safest thing I could possibly do under the circumstances. I was in stage #1 and will not need chemo or radiation as it is at this time, but I am closely watched. It was less than 6 months ago. 3 cancers in one breast and pre-cancer cells in the other. A no show on mammograms and sonograms. I can only thank God for the early detection.
