when i was just 18 years old I had a non cancer PHYLLODES TUMOR in my left breast. I didn't tell my parents for the longest time. i was terrified.
I finally told my Mom and was taken to doctor after doctor. Finally I was told that I would have to have surgery to remove my tumor.
it was April of 1973. The tumor took up most of my left breast so they removed the whole thing.
I am now 58. I never had lymp nodes removed and have had some reconstructive surgery but my left side is way smaller than my right side.
is,there anyone here that has gone through the same type of tumor? I would love to connect with someone. If so my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Pit PHYLLODES tumor in the subject.
