My breast self-exam saved my life

On a seemingly normal day, Patty Krug of Medford performed her routine breast self-exam. This day however, would prove to be anything but normal as she found a large lump on one of her breasts. "After I found the lump I realized it had been 3-4 months since I checked last," says Patty. "I was negligent for not checking for that long, and I did remember 3-4 months ago there was no lump."
