The left side -- infiltrating lobular carcinoma; on the right, ductal carcinoma in situ. This was based on what biopsies showed. After my surgery, though, the pathology reports were such that I was told my cancer is Stage IIIA. Cancer does not run in my family.

I was 57½ years old.

I finished chemo (ACT) July 16, 2012.
I finished radiation therapy September 26, 2012.

I had triple negative breast cancer. Stage 2. I state HAD so as to be positive. I try not to worry about it comming back. I do take care of myself well though.

I know I was in my mid fifties. When the doctor asked how old I was I replied that I didn't know. He thought it odd. I stated it doesn't matter how old I am until I can collect social security. So I told him what year I was born in and he figured it out. I got a degree but it was not in math

I was diagnosed in February 2012, 53yrs old. This is a rare, slow growing, often missed on mammograms cancer. It is more common in children and men. It was guessed that I had this for maybe 10yrs before it was diagnosed.

There was no bc in my family either. They used to or still say that it is a big contributor, but, it seems many of us have no one that had bc before us.

DX at age 59 in July of 2009 with IDC Stage 2a, ER+/PR+ and HER2+. Lumpectomy, one node removed with a very microscopic amount of cancer. 6 rounds of 3 different kinds of chemo(TCH 3 rounds, FEC 100 2 rounds and Abraxin one round) and then 33 rads. Switched oncs right in the middle of chemo. Did not like the way I was being treated. Well really the way I was not being taken care of.

I was diagnosed with Stage 1, grade 2/3, ER+ PR- Her2- IDC in May 2009 at age 48.

Four rounds of TC chemo and double mastectomy and now on Femara. My Grandmother and her three Sisters were all BC statistics. My Mother and Aunt had ovarian cancer. Needless to say, I wasn't terribly surprised when I was diagnosed.
