Newly diagnosed with Breast Cancer
Advertisements [?]
Invasive ductal carcinoma. so far i've had a lumpectomy and no lymph nodes were taken. i see the surgeon for a follow-up on the 13th, and i believe the results of the pathology tests.

i know radiation will be a part of the treatment plan, but not sure about chemo yet. i am dreading the chemo.

i've told my friends and coworkers, but i haven't told my mother yet. my little sister died from inflammatory breast cancer last year ,just two month after being diagnosed. i will tell mom after i know what treatments are recommended.

wish me luck with pathology report. the scenario i am hoping for is to be estrogen and progesterone positive, stage 1. so far, so good.
