Suggested Questions And Answer :

breast cancer risk

Although there is family history, it isn't very close (mother, sister)and it isn't all breast cancer. Scar tissue can interfere with future imagery and there are more types than mammogram in use in the detection of abnormalities in the breast. Ultrasound is often used as well as breast MRI and most tests can differentiate between scar tissue and other abnormal findings. General risk is 1 in 8 in a lifetime but many factors have to be considered to be any more definite than that. I see no reason why you should not have the breast reduction if that's what you desire.    Best wishes ....

Cancer misdiagnosis???

Your surgery should have been based on the biopsy results only. Since 8 cm is quite large I can't imagine that post-op it wasn't there. Actually what's done is done but there is no way to say that lumpectomy would have been a better option. There is always the possibility of margins that are not clean and additional surgery may have been needed. I suppose you could ask that your Pathology slides (biopsy and surgery) be reviewed by another Pathology Lab for your own satisfaction. Perhaps this is a good example for the need of second opinions before surgical decisions are made.  Best Wishes ....

Welcome to the Breast Cancer Community

Thank you, Chris, for the introduction. You summarized the purpose of/for this forum very nicely. it's also nice to be encouraged to write about your (my) history and give a little information. I have done that through comments but I don't think I have on my profile page. I agree it is sometimes very helpful to have a profile to look at, especially when someone comments, or asks a question, and you are trying to learn more, and better about a person. You were announced a while back but I have only seen you around most recently, so I am glad to learn a little bit more about you. You also have a very sweet photo of yourself. thanks again, kat

Breast Cancer Gene Question

Hi there, I'm a BRCA2 gal.  I just completed a year of cancer treatment on December 31, 2008.  I didn't know I had the gene until I was half way through my treatment.  Needless to say I wasn't thrilled, but on the other hand, facts are important because you can deal with them.  I learned that my paternal aunt and grandmother had had breast cancer and another paternal aunt had uterine cancer.  My gyne's had always told me that my father's side of the family wasn't important.  That was certainly misinformation! I would recommend you discuss your questions with your gyne.  See if you can be tested for the genes.  It's not that you want to know -- you need to know.  You can't deal with fears and possibilities, you can only deal with facts.   Please go talk to your gyne, ok?  And keep in touch with me.  I want to know how you are doing.  Feel free to private message me, all right? Warm regards, Chris Healingwell62 Breast Cancer 1 & 2 Community Leader

Denied Cancer Medical Coverage

I think that is outrageous.  I don't think they can deny you coverage if you do, god forbid diagnose you with BC.  You might never get BC, but if you do, they have no way of denying you coverage for that.  It wouldn't be a pre-existing condition.  I can't believe that they don't have to cover it by law.  What kind of insurance is that?       And what does having alot of cysts have to do with it?  I will be anxious to see what comes of this.  I also don't have the best insurance plan and I worry, since my husband is a non-tenured teacher and I fear my coverage might stop (can't afford COBRA) in the middle of treatment if, god forbid, my diagnosis comes back bad and he isn't rehired by his school next year  I hope someone fixes this ^%&*^(^ health insurance crisis for people.  We should never have to worry about being taken care of in this country.  Good luck.  But, you are healthy now, and don't have a reason to worry.  Just keep up your mammos.  You are entitled to those.
