Hi, I'm new here and on 9/13/12 my radiologist gave me the diagnosis of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma , Estrogen positive and Her2neu 3+. They won't be sure what stage until the surgery but think that it is stage 1 or 2. Of course, the radiologist was pretty sure it was just a benign lump when doing the biopsy. I'm concerned now as I want this thing out and now the surgery won't be until the 2nd week in Oct. seems so long to me from time of diagnosis until surgery and then treatment. The doctors say that it really won't grow or spread more to lymph nodes in that time frame. Is that really true or is that what they say to comfort us?
