Cancer Screening - Carol Nickelson: Patient Stories
Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 Treatment team: Franciscan Cancer Center, Northwest Medical Specialties
“I’ve always been faithful about getting my yearly mammograms. During a regular screening, doctors found a lump in my left breast that turned out to be cancer. I had a bilateral mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. I’ve been cancer-free ever since. I tell women to make sure you get that mammogram because you never know. I was fortunate to have excellent doctors and nurse navigators holding my hand throughout the entire experience.”
