You must be informed

The type of cancer that I had was lobular cancer. You don't have to be rocket scientist to read these medical reports. You sit down, put that little report in front of you. Things and terms that you don't understand, go to your library and do some research. You must be informed about what it is that is going on. For me, lobular cancer is a very fast growing cancer, it's usually in the ducts of the breast, and it manifests itself in particular little ways. The cells lined up single file. That was the way that they described it in the pathology report.
