Empowering Stories: Women Open Up about Medical Dismissal

Discovery of Breast Cancer at a Young Age

“Discovering a lump in my breast while showering at 33, just after giving birth, led me to the doctor’s office. Initially dismissed as a milk duct blockage, the lump continued to grow. Despite a denial for a mammogram due to my age, I insisted, citing a family history of breast cancer. An appointment with a female doctor revealed the urgency for a mammography.”

“The confusion from the mammography image prompted an extensive ultrasound and eventual tumor sample, which confirmed triple negative breast cancer. Despite dismissals and hereditary risk, I persisted, fortunate to be in remission for 11 years. Testing revealed a BRCA1 variant, making my cancer hereditary.”
