    Young Women and Breast Cancer

    "My diagnosis was unusual because I was so young, first of all, I was only twenty-four and I had started bleeding from my nipple and when I went to my doctors they told me it was normal, it was just hormones and I didnít believe them.

    After months of fighting for more testing they finally did a biopsy and realized that it was cancer but this whole process took about a year to get the actual biopsy done and then I had to have a total mastectomy by that time."
