Decision time - lumpectomy or masectomy?
It's been quite a interesting three weeks or so for me. An inflamed breast, biopsy, inconclusive results, surgical biopsy and today a diagnosis of high grade intaductal carcinoma with prominent atropine change. No family history of breast cancer. Throughout this time, for whatever reason, I anticipated that it would be cancer and decided on a mastectomy. At the appointment today I was given either lumpectomy and radiotherapy or mastectomy as options? I'm not sure what to think or feel? I actually expected an invasive diagnosis (don't ask me why?) so didn't anticipate that I'd have a choice. My next appointment and decision time is 12 January so I have some time...I'm thankful for this forum to speak frankly about it all. I have three children 26,25 and 21 and have spoken to them about the positive prognosis. Cheers Terrie
