SUSAN (Continued). . .

I started blogging as a way to get my thoughts out of my head and to make sense of this crazy terminal illness crap.

I’ve been ‘aware’ of breast cancer since the age of 15. That’s when I had my first needle biopsy after finding a lump. Biopsy was negative but that’s when I learned I had dense breast tissue.

Having dense breasts suck for many reasons, some of which are very painful breasts at THAT time of the month and being unable to breast feed beyond 3 weeks because of a double breast infection. I believe I had my first ‘baseline’ mammogram in my late 20’s (felt another lump). Unfortunately, dense tissue makes having a mammogram frustrating because the tissue shows up as white on a mammogram. As does Cancer.
