It was Saturday June 15th that Becky found a large lump appear in her right breast overnight. Having had no symptoms or changes previously, a large hard area (the size of a pack of cards) appeared overnight that was visible on the surface of skin. She wrote it off as hormonal / post-breastfeeding changes but at Jared’s insistence thought she should have it checked out to be sure. The doctor referred her for a mammogram and ultrasound which showed calcifications in the tissue and suggested she have a biopsy to rule out anything sinister. They were still confident it was unlikely to be cancer due to her age and no family history of cancer. The biopsy results came in while the family was camping together in the mountains: Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS)
