So i was told cancer is in my lymph nodes n that was it basically until a body scan is done... this Wednesday.... i asked for a copy of my report, it says lymph node 7.5mm.... no idea whether that meas lymph is that big or the cancer. Getting freaked now, no idea what to expect in the scan... then chemo and another op and possibly radiation.

As for my breast, i chose single mastectomy and was told that was the best decision i made, as there was a 2nd tumour.. 3.3cm, and the original was 2.5... clear margins.

Both cancers were different. DCIS and IDC

I am e+ p+ and HER2-
