There is no better word than B-9.
Now this is cause for a big celebration! Congratulations!
That is wonderful news!!!! So happy for you!
That is the magic word we all want to hear! I am so happy that you got this news!
Go celebrate now!
This is good news to hear.I'm Happy for your report.A little over a year ago I got that good news but the year before that was the Malignant. Had a another scare a few months ago but mammo and ultrasound showed nothing.
I know you will always keep up with your mammos.I've had benign breast tumors since I was 20 now 65.Of all the 45 years of tumors I only missed one mammo or doctor's appt.I was faithful all those years and had doctors who monitered me made sure I came in. The one office called me annually to schedule.
My first mammo was in my mid-30s, and I've had them annually since. Dr.s were always finding questionable lumps and bumps, so I was sent to a breast surgeon for tracking way back when... She's wanted "professional paws" on me every 6 months, with my mammo annually. (My gyn took the Spring exam; surgeon took the fall mammo and exam.)
Over the years, I've had several extra appointments for issues, and had a needle aspiration bx about 9 years ago in my left breast. This is the first time that things looked to be getting really ugly (and my post-op breast IS really ugly!)
My mom has had breast cancer in both breasts, tho late onset (ages 75 and 78. She's 95 now.) We're keeping a close eye on me.
And of course, I freaked out everyone in the family with my dx of metastatic appendix cancer 5 years ago.
I hate being the in cancer community, but we do meet the nicest people here. I knew that everyone would understand what I was going through.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!
I'm so happy for you! You must be on cloud 9!
Happy news! You certainly deserved it!
I wish I could share my "B-9" with everyone here!

About being part of the "cancer community", I just want to comment that this community truly understands and helps us understand and accept whatever it is that is going on with us in our lives - because having cancer effects everything. Knowledge is power and I can't imagine what my life would have been like without this community. Obviously, people's lives go on without being connected to others with similar hopes and fears and outcomes, but I'm so happy to have you all. Real happy.
Thrilled for you!
YIPPEE, HALLELUJAH, AND WHOOPEE!!! So very happy for your wonderful news!
Alice, did you celebrate over the weekend?
I've been too sore to celebrate. (My surgeon commented that she's never seen anyone bruise as badly as I did.)
However, mentally, I celebrated!
