I was finally examined

And so I talked with this woman who coordinates the program. And all these things on my mind, I'm trying to get through finals and I was teaching at the time. Thinking "Do I have cancer in my breast?" So finally I did have the appointment with the nurse practitioner. She examined me and she said yeah, there's something there. She was going to put my next step in terms of getting a mammogram for 2-3 weeks or something, because we're looking at the Christmas holiday. And decided that it was a distinct enough lump that maybe we could move the date up. So I wound up getting my mammogram within a week after being examined. And then they felt some changes that had occurred and needed to do another follow-up. And the follow-up would be with the surgeon.
