Alyca, I was diagnosed last November, about a month before turning 35. 1.8 cm, stage 1, grade 3, no lymph involvement. I am currently undergoing ACT chemo. So, the things I wish I had thought of back when I first received the diagnosis: you can get a second opinion on your pathology and with any mammograms, MRIs, etc, from MD Anderson or some other big cancer hospital if you want. You can also get second treatment opinions, which include having chemo before surgery, sometimes by having the physicians teleconference. Pre-surgery chemo wasn't an option for me because we didn't know the tumor was cancerous until it was removed. Grade 3 does mean aggressive but it also means that it usually responds well to chemo. My oncologist says I have at least an 85% chance of it not recurring since I am having chemo.
