This past September during her MRI screening a small mass was noted and a biopsy was performed, thankfully it was benign. A couple of weeks ago during her routine mammogram another area was noted and was biopsied. This time around it was not benign and showed atypical cells that need action taken. With her history, high risk status and 2 biopsies over the past 4 months developing breast cancer has now become a matter of “when” and not “if”. Therefore on the recommendation of 4 providers she will be having a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction at Beth Israel Hospital on February 29th. She will have a week’s hospital stay as well as a substantial recovery period.
