I’m a new member to the group
I’ve just joined the group. I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer at the end of November, I’m 40 years old & in good health & there is no family history. Thankfully I caught it early. As positive as I’ve tried to be about it all, I knew that this lump had felt different to the two previous benign lumps. I’ve had the tumor removed & I’m thankful it hasn’t spread further. My surgeon performed a lumpectomy & a wide local excision, to form a clear margin which then showed pre cancerous cells - this has been detected in two procedures that he has done. I now have the decision to make to have another wide local excision or to have a mastectomy.
Has anyone experienced either & if so I’d love to hear back from you & your experience?
