Was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in right breast three weeks ago. Still going through many tests, but after an MRI, the radiologist called and said that they found a suspicious area in the left breast also, and I need a biopsy.
Before I panic to the point of no return, does anyone know if it is uncommon to have cancer in both breasts at the same time?
I am/was, having a hard time dealing with the diagnosis in one. But I am trying my best to remain calm, as I have found that a constant state of terror and near hysteria can be very debilitating to the body and soul.
Any input would be so very appreciated. Thanks!
