The day she received her diagnosis was her “personal 9/11,” Navratilova told “GMA” anchor Robin Roberts. “I was devastated.” In February, the tennis legend was diagnosed with an aggressive form of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), considered the earliest form of breast cancer. Navratilova said she had a lumpectomy three weeks ago, during which her doctors determined that the cancer had not spread to her lymph nodes. She says there is only a “very small chance of it coming back.” “It is just in that one breast,” she said. “I’m okay and I’ll make a full recovery.”
