Beauties of the Month - Shaleea V.

I was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) at the age of 41 after my second mammogram when the tech noticed a difference in my images from my first mammogram just one year earlier. After that, I had a follow-up 3D mammogram and a biopsy that confirmed that there were cancer cells present. I sought a second opinion at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and subsequently received treatment there. I had a lumpectomy to remove the cancer cells in December 2018 followed by 16 rounds of radiation in February of  2019. 

I'm grateful that it was detected early and it was treatable! I regularly did my breast exams, but this was not a cancer that presented with lumps or pain. I am a strong advocate for regular mammograms and how they saved my life.
