So much to take in....
I was diagnosed on Tuesday 3rd December with Grade 3 Triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma (1cm). Activated lymph but no cancer on fine needle (so far). I am 49. Lump was not palpable and picked up on screening. Meeting with surgeon on Tuesday and likely surgery on Wednesday. Trying to work out if there is any reason NOT to opt for double mastectomy - whatever the recommendation? Feel there will just be a ticking time bomb if not. Likely to be offered wide lumpectomy but although only grappling with this for less than a week, feel mastectomy (ideally with reconstruction as soon as practicable) will give much greater long term peace of mind and help prevent reoccurrence. Would love to hear from anyone who has contemplated or opted for this path.
