Meagan’s Story

Meagan studying

During her senior year of college, Meagan, 22, noticed an irregular, pea-sized lump in her breast. When the lump did not go away after a few weeks, Meagan decided to have it checked by her health care provider. Meagan received an ultrasound and a biopsy to find out if the lump was cancerous. The test results found that the lump was a fibroadenoma—a type of benign (noncancerous) tumor in the breast that is common in women under age 30.
While the experience was incredibly nerve-wracking, Meagan often confided in her family, boyfriend, and close friends. She also relied on other women’s stories to help her through the process, as she has no family history of breast cancer. Meagan wants to empower and educate young women about their risk for breast cancer, particularly the importance of being aware of changes in your body and talking with your health care provider.
Meagan, who lives in California, recently earned her bachelor of science degree, and is studying to apply to nursing school. She enjoys hiking, playing music, and spending time with her friends and family.
