Detecting A 5mm Tumor with 3-D Mammography

Delores Stamper is a well-known face at Saluda Shoals Park in Columbia. Last year, doctors at Lexington Medical Center discovered a 5mm tumor in her left breast during a 3-D mammogram. The advanced technology helped find Delores’s breast cancer before she ever would have felt a lump. She shares her story and advocates for 3-D mammography in this WLTX “Buddy Call” report with news anchor Darci Strickland.
