Having surgery next week, lumpectomy, breast reduction and 4 weeks of radiation.
My physician feels this was caught early without lymph node pathology. how can he be so confident?
I had an MRI and it revealed a cyst on the same breast. I will have an ultrasound on Monday and I was told not to lose sleep over the new cyst findings. Then why an ultrasound?
I really feel I should have a bilateral mastectomy so I need not worry about testing every 6 months/mammo and fear of another diagnosis.
I am also nervous about the radiation treatments because I read that it really matters who the docor is, his/her experience, machine and calibration. Is it true it may cause heart and lung damage?
I already had colon cancer a few years back. 6 months of chemo. How much more can my mind and body take?
I am so confused right now!:(
