In March of 2017 Jenny's regular physician recommended she get a lung CT scan for some less-than-super-serious reasons, and the results came back that while there was a slightly un-worrisome lung nodule on the scan, it also revealed some asymmetry in her breasts. Her left one didn't look like the right one, like it "should." So, this led to mammograms, then ultrasounds, and biopsies from the area(s) in the left breast. And the bad news: Jenny has Stage II cancer in her left breast, and it is multifocal and multicentric. It is in more than one place (at least four places) in the breast and differently-shaped. So far, it does not seem to have spread anywhere else. After much discussion it seems the best course of action is going to be a total mastectomy of her left breast, with aromatase inhibitors as well. And maybe chemo and radiation. We're not totally sure yet. We are going to keep you posted here about Jenny's timeline and treatments, etc, as it happens. Thank you for visiting.
