This is the easiest question in the world for me.
I would go back to the moment when the doctor told my wife, after a needle biopsy of my wife's small tumor in her breast...that it was benign.
We celebrated the good news at the time...and got on with our lives...but later (after the tumor metastasized) her BC spread and eventually killed her.
Turns out that the part of the tumor they inserted the needle into, for the biopsy, turned out to be just a small benign outgrowth of the actual malignant tumor.
Needle biopsies are inaccurate.
If I could go back...I would tell the doctor to retest it and just extract the whole damn thing.
We could've saved her life...then and there...and she'd be alive today.
