Shelia’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Breast cancer ribbon I went to the doctor because I was bleeding from my nipple. I went to doctor after doctor, they all told me it was normal in some women. When it came time for the mammogram I told the women preforming the test that my breast hurt. When she was doing the test I started to bleed. When she had finished the test you could see there was something in the test.

From there I was sent to get a biopsy done. The test came back, and I then decided that I had no other choice but to lose both breast and get new breast implanted the same day. I was lucky I was a positive person. I healed up very nice.  I just wanted everyone to know that if you are bleeding through your nipple don’t stop trying , make your doctor send you in for a biopsy.
