Actor Chhavi Mittal found a lump on her breast a few days back and then, her world changed. Chhavi Mittal said to a leading daily that, “I did multiple tests, MRI and was advised a biopsy. I have been processing it for twenty days and preparing myself for the worst.”

Chhavi Mittal was heartbroken and recalled the time when was told to do a biopsy. Recalling the time, she said, “The final confirmation came on Monday when I got a call from the cancer specialist. He told me to meet and discuss the options,”

“I cried a lot when I was advised to have a biopsy. The fear of something like that happening is much worse than finding out that this is it. I’ve had some really traumatic sleepless nights before I actually went for the biopsy. That was an emotional struggle for me. It got me prepared,” she added.

Mental Health

It not only took a toll on her physical health but also, on her mental health. However, she is in a much better position mentally. She said that, “When I know something is happening that is beyond my control, my reaction towards it is not distress. I try finding solutions. That’s how I responded to this call as well. I spoke to cancer survivors, cancer specialists, and plastic surgeons, and discussed it with multiple people. I’m prepared for what my case looks like. Yes, one cannot anticipate beyond a point but one common thing among all cancer survivors is that we all have to fight. It’s a choice nobody gets. The only choice I’ve given myself is either I fight it crying and lose the quality of life or fight with positivity and give it the best energy I can. I chose the latter one.”

“Everything happens for a reason and I will like to find my cause in this whole thing. I know I will be fine. I will have scars after my surgery, but that scar is only going to make me stronger,” she said while mentioning that the doctor told her to be strong.

She says that she has a great husband who supported her throughout this journey and also, she is lucky to have a supporting family and great friends. She revealed that, “My close family and friends have cried more than I have. They don’t want me to go through this. My mom is going to come here to take care of the kids. My biggest concern is that I can’t be as hands-on as I am with my kids. But I know they are going to be in good hands.”

As a mother of a 10-year-old and a 3-year-old, she was quite worried but because of her family, she is tension free at least for that part.

Breast Cancer

On Saturday, she posted a picture on Instagram talking about her battle with cancer. She said that “I’m horrified at the number of women who go through it. If I can do my bit in helping women detect cancer early… Also, the challenge for women fighting breast cancer is emotional trauma. I want to show women that it doesn’t have to be so emotionally traumatic. If you have a good chance you should be positive about it. There is no point in crying about the things that are not in your control.”
