Hi everyone,
i wanted to say hi  and thank you to everyone for the useful comments  puts on this page.
I started my journey 3 weeks ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my right breast after going to the doctor with a suspected hematoma to my breast after a simple fall.

Sadly results came back with a diagnoses of infiltrating ductal carcinoma and infiltrating lobular carcinoma, which means a lump in my breast, milk ducts and in my lump glands, after ultrasounds, CT scans and MRI  of both breast and Brain, as well as core biopsy of my breast and lump glands, we have also discovered it is now in my Liver.

Thursday this week is full results of whether it has also travelled to my brain, fingers crossed it stopped at my Liver.

Then finally a course of action of whether it is chemotherapy  first then mastectomy, or other way round.

Again thank you for all your helpful comment, reading other people stories helps you fell like your not alone.

    You are certainly not alone. You'll have your up days and your down days, but you are not alone. Remember there are no silly questions, the devil is in the details and if you want information, ask for it. xxx M

    What a huge thing to find out. If it was me, I think I would just get the mastectomy done while I was up to it. At least that's a quick positive step before weeks of chemo. Liver you really can't tell on that one until treatment is underway. Some are fine a decade later with treatment and some just fade away. A good bonus would be for it not to be in the brain. We're here for you. <3

     Hi @Miss M - wow, what a huge shock this all must be for you. You have come to the right place, so welcome.

    I guess you were completely railroaded after finding your Initial bc diagnosis was secondary bc - less common than I thought after attending the forum in Sydney last month.

    Well, membership of this club is not exclusive - it really is one that none of us want to be a part of in many respects - but feel free to vent, get feedback, ask lots of questions.

    The BCNA online staff are pretty helpful too - I have only been an online forum member just over a month.   

    Thinking of you re: the rest of your results tomorrow.

    I would like to thank everyone for thier kind words and support.
    after hospital visit today , I have a little more direction of how my treatment will look. Results came back with secondary cancer is only been found in my liver, so I will start aggressive chemotherapy next week for 3-6 month they are suggesting, then surgery to remove my breasts. So time will tell how my body reacts to the treatment, but I'll stay positive that I will stay as fit and healthy as I fell at the moment. 
    Thanks again to everyone of their support.
