Publisher Description

“The Lump” recounts my choice to become a doctor, the experiences that molded my surgical career and the startling discovery in 1998 that led to my own mastectomy, chemotherapy, mammograms, and hot flashes. Not unusual for a woman, but very much so for a gynecologist. 


My story is told with humor and honesty from my very unique perspective as a male, a gynecologist, and a breast cancer patient. As a male physician saddled with a distinctly female disease, my experience was as unique and humorous as it was challenging, forcing me to reexamine my profession from my patients’ perspective.

The Lump

I read his book in just a few hours. I felt as though Dr. Johns was sitting on my deck and telling the story in person. Hysterical, sad, poignant, and educational. Wonderfully written, great insight!

Tough experience to share - with humor to soften the blow

This is a fast and good read covering one of life's biggest challenges. Dr. Johns uses his years of expertise and wonderfully wicked wit to to walk you through this difficult journey as only a physician and cancer survivor can do.
