Longtime pageant participant Kelsey Lawrence conveys the message even young women can be affected by breast cancer.
When Kelsey Lawrence was just 14, she discovered a lump in her breast. Finding the lump was alarming, but because she figured breast cancer only affected older women, she didn’t say anything to anyone.“After a few weeks, I felt the lump again and it had gotten bigger. Of course, I was scared even more and I eventually told my mom and she took me to the doctor,” Lawrence said.Luckily, after a series of tests, the lump was determined to be a benign fibroadenoma, a term used for a lump of non-cancerous cells.
