I'm 21 years old and was just recently diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer. It's called Metaplastic Carcinoma. I'm also Triple Negative. I have only talked to one other person with this type of cancer and she's not close in age. I just had a full radical masectomy 3 weeks ago. I had 4 chemo treatments before surgery but it wasn't shrinking the tumor so the oncologist made the decision to go ahead and remove it. It was the size of a large orange/small grapefruit. I'm just having a hard time looking down and seeing this scar and being "lopsided" .. just would be nice to talk to someone else my age going through something similar. Thanks : ) And good luck to everyone in their fight against cancer.
