|Tennis Legend Has Cancer
|NEW YORK (AP) _ Tennis great Martina Navratilova says she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and her prognosis is excellent.
Navratilova said in a phone interview Wednesday that a routine mammogram in January found a lump, and a biopsy the following month determined it was a noninvasive cancer called ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS.
The nine-time Wimbledon women's singles champion had a lumpectomy in March and will start six weeks of radiation therapy next month.
