CBS RADIO Classic Hits WCBS-F/NEW YORK morning co-host PATTY STEELE rejoined SCOTT SHANNON in mornings after taking a few weeks medical leave to deal with cancer. She discovered a lump on her breast, which turned out to be cancerous, had surgery to remove the malignant tissue and is now 100% cancer-free.
“It wasn’t something that was really on my radar and I felt it and didn’t think about it until I happened to go into my regular doctor who said, ‘Let’s do some testing here.’ And that’s how we found it," she told CBSLOCAL.COM.
"You think it’s not going to be you because there’s no family history. But what you find out … 90% of cases are not genetically predisposed.”
