Last January, when Stephanie Scott was 35, a mammogram found a 3-centimeter lump in her breast that she could not feel, despite having performed regular breast self-exams. She has since had surgery, completed chemo in August, and had 33 radiation treatments. Today, doctors can find no evidence of her disease.
"Without the diagnostic mammogram I received I would have not known cancer was trying to take over my body... I was specifically told by my radiologist that if they would have found this cancer even six months after my diagnosing mammogram, they would have been having a different conversation with me."
