My Story

Ann | age 94
Retired Probation Officer
Seattle, WA
12 years, 11 months since her MammoSite treatment.

After a mammogram in August 2003 I was diagnosed with a questionable "spot" on my left breast. I had breast surgery in September 2003. Dr. Tim Bao Chao was my surgeon. It went well. I then went in for chemotherapy for 6 long weeks. That went well also. I had no after effects.

Then after a mammogram in August 2006 I was again diagnosed with a "spot" on my right breast. After a conference with Dr. Chao I chose to go with the MammoSite procedure. I had to go in for radiation for only 5 days - twice a day. It went so well I would recommend it to any woman who has any doubts.

This profile is solely the words of the person who received MammoSite Targeted Radiation Therapy to treat breast cancer. Note that this profile is specific to this particular person, and experiences will vary.
