I wasn't surprised

I wasn't 100% surprised. I had been having problems with lumps for a few years. Fibrocystic disease. And I had seen my family physician and he had referred me to a surgeon. So whenever I discovered a lump, I would go in and visit the surgeon and he would check it out. I think in the back of my mind, I was aware of breast cancer. I was doing all the right things, you know, getting mammograms regularly, but when it actually happened, there was a little part of my mind that said well, you know, every time you went you were kind of prepared for that to occur.
