Janice Dickinson Diagnosed with Breast Cancer
Janice Dickinson has revealed the sad news that she was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks ago.
“It’s still quite shocking,” the 61-year-old former supermodel and reality star told the Daily Mail. “Today I got very scared. … I just get very scared and it hit me. But I am not gonna let that define me, the fear. I’m going to get through this, I’ll be just fine kiddo.’”
Janice went to the doctor on March 8 as she was having stomach trouble, but the doctor discovered a “pea size” lump on her right breast.
“The doctor noticed it immediately. She said, ‘this doesn’t feel right.’ And she said, ‘We have to be real comprehensive with this and have it checked out,’” Janice said.
“I’m always optimistic, initially when the doctor found the lump it hurt, it became quite painful when you touch it, that’s the point when I knew this is serious, when the doctor touched this little lump in my right breast, about the size of a pea, and I went bingo, I have cancer,” Janice said.
