Dr. Clifford was the surgeon my Dallas gynecologist recommended, when I discovered a tiny lump in my right breast at age 67 — 6 weeks after a “clear” mammogram! It was malignant, but Dr. C. found, in the 2nd lumpectomy, that it had not spread. He was still VERY careful to get a “safe” margin around it. It has been 6 years; I’m confident it will not return. (It was caused by my taking a fairly high level of estrogen for 20 years, after an early menopause. I immediately stopped taking it. I still have “hot flashes,” but I’m ALIVE & well!!! ) Ladies, please do your self-exams religiously! That’s how I discovered the tiny lump, myself — it was very obvious, & it had NOT been there a week before that! You just can’t be TOO careful! Good luck!
