I am 30 years old and have just been diagnosed with BC which doctors think is IBC grade 3 (not sure of stage) I have had a swollen breast for nearly 6 weeks which doc initially thought was an infection. 3 biopsies later and I have a semi diagnosis. I have no family history of BC.
I am also HER2+. I have noticed people talking about hormone receptors and triple negative. Can anyone explain this to me? I am to take a drug for 1 year because I am HER2+?
Treatment plan is chemo - 6 rounds (every 3 weeks), then surgery and radiation. I have my consultation with the oncologist on Tuesday so will know when I will begin chemo then.
I am still processing and slowly learning about everything. I have so many questions.
Any advice as far as treatment would be ever so helpful right now. Did anything really help you through chemo?
