Breast cancer for the under-50s

Breast cancer is far less common in the under-50s, but this can leave younger people with a diagnosis feeling isolated. This group is a place for them to come together, share experiences and support each other.

A month today i had my mastectomy. Yesterday i had my lymph node results but they are still waiting on the HER ones.. Whatever that means.

Cancer was in a node and the cancer is 3 times bigger than they thought...

No idea what will happen now :(

Hi  

How’s things?  Just came across your post.

I can’t answer what will happen next but just wanted to say we are here. 
The Her 2 results are important as the treatment plan will be changed accordingly. I’m not an oncologist but I believe if the results are Her2 positive- you will be offered chemo. 

When do you expect to hear from your team?

Much Love
