Lisa Vidal Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis
Lisa Vidal of “Being Mary Jane” fame recently revealed some shocking news. The actress, 51, took to “The Real” this week to share that she was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in her breast tissue.
Loni Love: What was the diagnosis?
Lisa Vidal: My diagnosis was invasive ductal carcinoma. And here’s the thing. It’s so crazy because… my mammogram showed nothing.
Adrienne Bailon: See, that’s the scary part!
Lisa: So, the reason I really wanted to talk about this. Not only to share the experience, but to also say early diagnosis is so crucial. And mammograms don’t always find it. Nothing against mammograms, but the ultra sound is what kinda saved my life. Because… um they found it so early and mammograms like a snowstorm and you’re trying to find the snowflake. And you don’t see it until it’s much worse, and so that why I really kind of want to advocate for women to get ultra sounds and early detection and so that was my diagnosis and the good thing was that it was treatable.
Lisa’s diagnosis came just WEEKS after her sister was also diagnosed with breast cancer.
Please get checked ladies!!!!
Best wishes to Lisa and her family.
