Last fall, I found a small lump in my  breast. Panicking a little, I rushed to a doctor, who told me that while it was benign, I would have to undergo a lumpectomy. The surgery itself was simple but some aspects of the recovery stretched for months. My piece seeks to find beauty in damage and asymmetry.
