My Journal * Here is a self portrait I created showing myself during the breast biopsy. I have known a lot of women going through breast cancer. I have never heard about "the table" with the HOLE! Is it a big secret?! You lie down on the table with your breast placed through a big hole. They crank you up like you are getting an oil change. Yep...that's the way it is. So here I am with my "boob" hanging down below the table as the doctor is underneath performing the wonderful biopsy.
