Secondary cancers after Hodgkins

Hi, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins at 19 and was given chemotherapy for 6 months. I was told I was in remisssion. However 3 months later I found swollen lymph nodes. This time I was given radiation, after 6 months of treatment I was again pronounced in remission. I have been cancer free for 18 years. However, last week I found a lump in my breast and the mammogram and ultrasound confirm a suspicious looking mass. I'm scheduled for a biopsy next Thurs. I was wondering if any other Hodgkins survivors that have encountered second tumors might be interested in corresponding about their experiences. Sincerely, Beth
