I just got my mammogram and some good news. I’m cancer-free for 2.5 years now. Early detection is key to surviving cancer. Thankfully, mine was found to be only at Stage 0 after my 2015 mammogram. Did you know that I was Stanford-San Jose’s very first surgery patient?

Women should be tested for breast cancer every year, MEN TOO, if they find a lump. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A mammogram is an easy way to get peace of mind, or an early diagnosis.
