My dear sister was diagnosed last week so this is very fresh and I so desperately want to share a good news story with her.
Back in 1992 she had Hodgkins Disease and underwent Mantle Field radiation and we suspect her breast cancer was caused by the long term radiation effect.
She's been diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma - grade 3 - 3cm - TN and has been recommended for full mastectomy followed by reconstruction and then chemo. She had an MRI which showed no spread to the lymphs however she's having biopsy early next week to confirm this.
One of her biggest fears (and there are plenty) is the zero radiation available to her. Is there any one out there with similar experience? I would love to hear from you.
