Mr. Paul Cross was diagnosed with grade 2 cancer after he noticed a lump in the breast while having a bath. Soon he had to undergo mastectomy. Biopsy reports of the lymph nodes confirmed that Mr. Cross's cancer had not spread and so there was no need for further treatment like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
