    Thanks for the welcome.  I’m not happy to find myself part of this group again but grateful for the support and access to information.  I was diagnosed with a ducal BC in 2006 and was diagnosed with a lobular BC in the same breast last month. I’ve had another lumpectomy in the right side and have started hormone blockers - yea another 5+ years of those! Now letting things settle before deciding what’s next. 
    I used BCNA for support last time and found it very useful.

    Pop your story in the 'newly diagnosed' category @PrisMay1 ... it will once again become a bit of a 'diary' of your treatment xx.

    You may even find it interesting to go back & read your old posts (I am guessing in a different name?)  

    We also have a private group for Lobular BC - feel free to join that one too if you like .... we try & put latest developments with Lobular there, for members to read xx

    Take care & all the best
