First I want to say how many beautiful young courageous women are on here. I probably should not even be on here because I am older and have lived to see my grandchildren. But here goes and hope my story will help. I found a 4mm nodule in left breast two years ago and took it to my doctor and to radiology. They did all the special tests and diagnosed me with a blocked duct and no cancer. Of course that is what you want to hear. A year later I went back for my annual visit with the radiologist and he agreed no cancer. My intuition keep telling me they were wrong. So I insisted that I see a surgeon. It was cancer and it had become early stage imvasive breast cancer. I am lucky it is low grade, no HER2/neu, and no lymph node involvement. It is fueled by hormones. Now I am waiting on the Oncotype Dx to see the percentage of recurrance to see if chem would be beneficial.
