New to Cancer Ninja? Click here to start at the beginning of Jane's story. You'll learn more about her and how she got to this point.
When we last saw Jane, her surgeon had just told her that she probably has early-stage breast cancer. (This is not unusual. Most women diagnosed with breast cancer have early-stage disease, thank goodness!) Today her surgeon will tell her about a choice she'll have in what surgery is performed: lumpectomy (removal of just the tumor itself) or mastectomy (removal of the entire breast).
