Lately, Dr. has had to adjust levels of drug because he is having a hard time regulating TSH. 14 years ago stage 2 aggressive breast cancer, it was not found on mammogram but a lump just popped out. I had a lumpechtomy followed by chemo and radiation. Yesterday, they found another lump in the same breast.
