Wright left a biopsy which to date caused recurrent breast cancer 3 times. He was told three times prior to the double mastectomy to remove the biopsy cancer lump, but "oh no" I came out of a surgery and it was still there. I attended a scheduled appointment at CCNW on my dime and all they could say was this happens in 1 in 10,000, do you really think we should remove every biopsy spot? Yes, any chance for cancer to return should removed. The spot was right there for cry sake easy removal.
