Beauty queen found suspicious lump at 14
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.
