Giovanna

I’m Giovanna and doctors said to me that I had suspected nodule in the left part of my breast, during a routine control with mammogram and ultrasounds. I’ve always take controls because of some benign nodules I had.  The specialist sent me to an oncologist who prescribed me another series of analysis.  The diagnosis was: ductal carcinoma. From the day I started the same iter af all: fine-needle biopsy then the surgery and the analysis of sentinel node that fortunately negative. I had radio therapy. I trusted doctors and I faced everything calmly. For 5 years I will have a cure  that causes me some problems such as insomnia, articular pain and depression but I’m going onwards with hope and love for life.
