I was at my annual checkup when my internist found a lump. I had not felt it. He recommended an ultrasound. The lump was 2.7 cm and a biopsy was done. A very thorough biopsy and I was told I had cancer. I trust UCLA doctors so although I was nervous before the surgery I knew I was in the right place. All my family and church friends were praying for strength for me.
After the surgery, I got a call to tell me it was downgraded to pre-cancer. I felt it was a miracle from God - he sent me here and to Dr. Yeh for a reason. He is the best doctor and all the staff is so good. They really care. It was a very happy experience.
