I got the diagnosis on August 4, and all I can say is "Thank God for mammograms!" That is the only way they found this. I had a lumpectomy on September 19 to remove an egg-sized mass. I guess the margins weren't wide enough so my second surgery will be on 10/31. Several weeks of radiation will follow that. I just had a physical in April and we did not have any indication that there was a concern. Go figure!
