          When it comes to her health, Kristi Sanders takes matters into her own hands. Earlier this year, it paid off when she found a lump in her breast. “I found it on a Friday and went to my doctor first thing Monday morning,” Sanders recalled. “And she confirmed it and sent me for a mammogram and that turned into an ultrasound and that turned into a biopsy.” At 38 years old Sanders learned she had invasive ductal breast cancer. “I had the mastectomy in March and they did the sentinel node biopsy then. Two lymph nodes out of six came out positive. And they also saw that it was pressing up against my chest wall,” says Sanders. Her cancer may have gone undetected for two years since she was under forty - the recommended age for a mammogram. Dr. Lea Blackwell was her surgeon. “The whole goal of mammography is to find a tumor while it’s small and more manageable because you get a better outcome the earlier the diagnosis is made,” says Dr. Blackwell. She is a surgical breast oncologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Being in touch with your body can make a world of difference in finding cancer early. That goes beyond just feeling for lumps. Turns out there are several warning signs that merit a closer look. A lump or knot is certainly something to look for. So is: swelling, warmth and redness of the breast. Change in size and shape, dimpling of the skin. Nipple discharge, a scaly sore or rash on the nipple and a new, persistent pain. According to Johns Hopkins Medical Center, 40% of breast cancers are detected by women during a self exam. But it shouldn’t be used in place of mammogram which can pick cancer up before it can be felt. “Different imaging modalities improve on figuring out what’s going on. One may give you a little bit of information and then another one will add to that information,” says Dr. Blackwell. Thanks to her self-awareness, Sanders likely improved her own outcome. “Typically the average cancer patient with this is 55,” says Sanders.

            Website: http://www.livingbyhisdesign.com/ Melody and Rob were in their early twenties when they discovered they were pregnant. Then at just 24 weeks, she went into labor. Hours later, Leighton was born. She passed away just 19 days later. Melody became obsessed with having another baby. They tried for years, but her grief made her infertile. It wasn’t until Melody began to let go that they finally became pregnant. They had a son, Caleb, and they adored him. Still, they wanted to have another baby girl - just like the one they had lost. After a few more years and more injections and tests, they decided to abandon treatment. Then in January 2001, they found a lump. A few weeks later, Melody was diagnosed with breast cancer, and…she was pregnant.

                  When Angeline Vuong, 27,was diagnosed with cancer in one breast earlier this year, her first reaction was “A DOUBLE MASTECTOMY. NOW. ” Turns out, she’s far from alone: a recent JAMA study of 190,000 breast cancer cases in California between 1998 and 2011 found a six-fold increase in the percentage of women with early-stage cancer in one breast who were choosing double mastectomies. But are they necessary? And do they reduce your risk of a second cancer?

                    “It started in February of this year. I just found a lump,” says Kristi Sanders. At 38 years old, Kristi Sanders routinely looked for breast cancer, but never expected to find it. “I was diagnosed on February 21st with invasive ductal carcinoma,” says Sanders. An aggressive form, Kristi fought it aggressively, undergoing a double or bilateral mastectomy - having both breasts removed. “I knew I wanted bilateral because I didn’t want to have to worry about it coming back on the other side,” says Sanders. It was not what she lost, but what Kristi kept. A piece of herself that was near and dear to her heart. “Nipple sparing mastectomy is a surgical technique to remove the entire breast and leave the entire skin envelope intact,” says Dr. Lea Blackwell, who is a surgical breast oncologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Nipple sparing mastectomy preserves precious parts. An option not available a few years back. “Because the ductal tissue ends and terminates in the nipple. There is some breast tissue that is left there at the nipple and previously it was felt that caused problems with possible recurrence,” says Dr. Blackwell. The primary concern, understandably, is to safely and effectively remove the cancer. Studies show this technique, while leaving some tissue intact has a high success rate and low complications. “Even when you do a mastectomy about 2% of breast tissue is left. And they found if you leave the nipple there’s about a 3% recurrence rate in the nipple. And they think that is a reasonable amount of risk leaving the nipple in place,” says Dr. Blackwell. Candidates should have smaller breasts and a small tumor not located near the nipple. This natural look leaves patients feeling like themselves. “The way that Dr. Blackwell did the surgery, I woke up and I was mostly the way that I am now, “ says Sanders. A new approach to mastectomy is not only preserving life- but quality of life.
