Whoopeee! I finally found another medullary. Hi buddy!!! Why did you have chemo with no positive nodes? Anyway, I am on another site with a lot of gals who are on chemo and having a terrible time. The chemo itself does not seem too bad but a lot of infections seem to go with it. Anyway, I am so glad to find you, we are only 6% of the breast cancer people. A select few. Hugs, Shirlann

Hi Shirlann,

Seems I read that you 6% people have a better prognosis too.

BTW, do you have any more jokes - Emailed rhe dumb blonde one to someone with mets and depressed - she got a good LOL from it.

Hey> I guess the reason for chemo is because of my age 39 and a really strong family history. I had my second chemo Thur. What do you know about medullary breast cancer? Are you going through chem? Tammy

No, mine was only 4mm & 3mm so I just had a lumpectomy and rads. I am just short of 4 years out and feeling just fine. Hope you have good luck too. Hugs, Shirlann

Hi, dear, well, not too much. It is clled medullary because the tissue resembles "Medulla" or brain tissue. Otherwise, it is really just BC. Medullary's tend to be agressive on the scale of nuclei activity, but when caught, they are slightly less likely to recur or metastasize. Not much different, really, just that I felt so lonely. All the others have Lobular or the other one? Getting goofy, well, I am glad I found you anyway. Hope you do well, I am sure you will. Gentle hugs, Shirlann
