Suggested Questions And Answer :

Breast cancer with focal atypical lobulat hyperplasia

This is a purely personal decision that should be discussed in detail with both the Oncologist and your Surgeon. If you would be considering reconstruction then also a Plastic Surgeon. It isn't anything that anyone other than those listed above could advise either for or against. I can certainly see why you might be considering bilat. mastectomy at this point but you need to give this some careful study and consideration.    Regards ....

pT1cN1aMx Breast Cancer

Hi, I am so sorry that you have been diagnosed with breast cancer... I am going to try to help as much as I can with your questions,but I am not a doctor,therefore you should ask your Surgeon/Oncologist,who has all your medical record,to explain everything to you in details. From what I gather,your report states that you have invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) pT1cN1aMx ,means that your cancer is estrogen and progesterone positive and your HERe is negative which is a good thing regarding management.Your cancer grade is 2 meaning that the abnormal cells activity are moderate or intermediate. Unfortunately you have lymph nodes that are affected and in this case Chemotherapy would be recommended as well as medication such as Tamoxifen or other drug that interrupts the hormone estrogen and its connection to breast cancer. I am sorry if I cannot be more helpful,but I am sure your doctor will take good care of you,taking in consideration also your heart problem and will plan the best specific treatment for your particular case. With proper treatment, I am hopeful that you'll beat this dreadful disease and be well on the road for a complete recovery. Wishing you all the best and good luck!

Breast cancer-lumpectomy confused about oncologist treatment options

Avoid the chemotherapy if you can because of its serious side effects. You should build up your immune system so that your body can recover from the treatment and protect you in the future. You might want to contact an alternative MD for appropriate supplements.

TCM for breast cancer?

I know of no natural methods of treatment for cancer and I think your Sister was very unwise to refuse the recommended treatment. I am not surprised that her Dr.s are not too supportive since she refused to accept the standard treatment program. You say she was scared to do the Chemo and Radiation but I would be more frightened of the recurrence of the cancer without treatment. She is truly taking a HUGE risk .... changing your lifestyle and eating habits are good things but these things will do nothing to aid in the prevention of a recurrence. I encourage you to try to persuade her to accept the treatment offered to give her the best chance to be free of cancer and prevent it's recurrence. I'm sure she might be able to find someone who practices Naturopath but I would NOT recommend it.   Kindest regards ....

Chemo or No Chemo, that is the question

Though I've not dealt with a recurrence, I am currently accepting very aggressive measures to get rid of the cancer that has visited my body. From my perspective, If docs are offering treatments, take them. Different cancers respond to different chemos and it's hard to know which....  I've had 2 different regimens (diff.drugs,last year and this year) and I'm done! You can get through it. Give yourself the best chance to show those cancer cells the door! Hang in there & keep us posted. beaming light & health your way...

From reading your past posts I see you've had to fight for the right testing to find out about your own cancer. Good for you! Proactive is the way to start on this journey and the way to stay during it. It's never easy but for sure you can do this. Staging will come after your surgery. As you have bilateral breast cancers, they will try to determine if it has spread or if it's two different cancers. Please let us help you as you go through this. I've had a lot of difficulty with this site since August but have sent you a private message... not sure it went through or not but.. Best wishes.

Breast Cancer Recurrence

Hi, Few questions are still unanswered when reading your medical history - do you have a family history of cancer? Do you have any of the associated risk factors of breast cancer e.g oral contraceptive use or hormonal replacement therapy, obesity etc? Well as far as recurrence of breast cancer is concerned it is usually maximum in the first 2 -3 yrs and then the rate of recurrence falls with the number of years. Most likely in your case it is a new cancer. The good thing is that as you describe it is a carcinoma in situ and it has not infiltrated the lymphatics or vascular channels. What you need to do is discuss with your surgeon what would be the best option in your case. You should go ahead with a mastectomy if he suggests it. Also you need to know that you dont have to worry about this being life threatening as the 5 year survival rates for a non metastasizing breast cancer are from 70 -80%. Goodluck.

stage 3

I was 36 when diagnosed, moving into 40 now (oh no!).  I had stage 3 cancer (very aggressive grade 3; 1 sentinal node positive, but barely; tumor was +5cm when removed) in Sept 2005.  I did the mastectomy, chemo (A/C and then abraxane) and radiation.  I finally did reconstruction in 2007.  Life is still good for me...your sister will have a long haul ahead of her.  Keep her positive and make sure she takes care of herself (eats well, drinks plenty of water/fluids, gets some exercise).  It's a difficult journey and I won't lie and tell you everyone comes out ok...some don't...HOWEVER, there are really good protocols that for many people do the trick and stop the cancer.  The best words to be heard are NED (No Evidence of Disease).  My most cherished words everytime I go see my oncologist. Tell her not to worry about the hair or the eyelashes or looking funky... remind her that she's beautiful, bald and all.  I hope she has a good prognosis from this and will get through her chemo and radiation like it was nothing. Good luck to you both!

What are my options

I just wanted to tell you first ... How sorry I am about your second diagnosis.. I had a sentinal lymph node biopsy done 2 weeks prior to my Double masectomy. The way they did this was a day surgery. I went in and they injected a radioactive material around my nipple area (stung for a second like a bee sting). I then waited a few hours before the actual removal of sentinal node. In surgery the doctor injected a blue dye to help better locate the sentinal lymph node. The only side effect I had was I had really pretty blue urine for the day..My lymph nodes were clear.  I just posted right below your with questions also about future treatment.
