invasive ductal carcinoma
Wait as patiently as you can for the advice from the hospital. Once you have some more information think of the questions you want answered.
Take a breath and take things one step at a time and be guided by your medical team as things progress.
Most importantly please don't go to Dr Google as you may end up on sites which are not giving you the best information and advice. Your medical team will guide you as they know YOU.
There are some good websites such as this one and you will discover them as you go along.
Talk to the BCNA staff and they will send information relevant to YOUR circumstances - no use getting too far ahead and worrying yourself for nothing.
The ladies here are always on line so you are not alone in this whole BC saga.
Thinking of you and sending you a big hug.
My best wishes to you for a speedy recovery.
Gather your friends, family around and let them love you.
And dont lose hope.

Sux to be here but you are in the right place for support, information, warmth and understanding. The start is the worst. Waiting, waiting and waiting and your brain playing tricks on you. It's a tricky beast this BC, it's totally specific to yourself. There are similarities but you really don't know exactly what your dealing with until after surgery and you get your final pathology. Hence the caution with Dr Google. We've all done it though
Distraction is probably the best thing at the moment until you see your surgeon. Stay busy and keep your mind from wandering where it shouldn't.
Remember no question is too small or too silly to ask here. Everybody get's where you're at.
All the best lovely.
, there is lots of great advice on here about treatment, look in the tests and treatment board specifically.
is right, there are lots of different types of Breast Cancer (who knew!?) and you will come to find what yours is, and what the treatment program is going to be.
Be informed is my advice, ask lots of questions and keep up the exercise so you are fit and healthy for surgery and treatment.
Oh and I just thought of something someone told us, we recorded my first appt with the oncologist and it was so good to be able to listen back to it without the stress of the day. Most doctors seem fine about this.
Take someone with you too so they can remember bits you don't.
Good luck with it all.
