1. Tell us about your personal breastfeeding experience with your child:
My breastfeeding story began long before my daughter was born or even conceived. When I was twenty-one, I discovered a lump in my left breast. At twenty-two, I underwent a core needle biopsy which revealed that I had a benign condition called Pseudoangiomatous Stromal Hyperplasia. I was told that this is just an overgrowth of normal tissue and is not pre-cancerous, but is rather rare in a solid mass and hasn’t been widely researched. I was given the option to wait and watch for changes or to have it surgically removed. Having such little information, I decided to have it removed. The mass ended up being about the size of a golf ball. My surgeon was fabulous and was even able to make the incision around my areola so it is hardly noticeable!
