The lump didn't worry me

The lump was found by my gynecologist when I went in for a pap smear. I just said well, I know this isn't any kind of malignancy because I don't have history, I'm pretty healthy, I eat well, I exercise. But when I went back in August, the lump was still there and he said I want you to see the surgeon. And I went for the mammogram and there was nothing on the mammogram, so I went into see the surgeon and he scheduled the biopsy and that went fairly smoothly. That was right before the Labor Day weekend, and I enjoyed my Labor Day weekend. But when I came back in to see the doctor on Tuesday morning was when he let me know that it was malignant.
