After years of regular mammograms, Shreveport mom discovers she has three tumors
Suzanne Western has always been diligent when it comes to mammograms.
After losing a grandmother to breast cancer and seeing her aunt battle the disease, she’s always known the importance of keeping regular appointments for early detection. But it would be her own experience that would show her self-exams are equally as important.
In June 2013, only a month after a mammogram, Western found a knot in her left breast.
She had been getting ready for her first day back to work in fleet services in Shreveport following a summer vacation when she felt it while rubbing lotion on a sunburn.
