My mum has been diagnosed with grade 3 metaplastic carcinoma, shes had breast cancer previously in same breast 20 years ago but this is a different cancer. Really nervous shes waiting for CT scan results. They say its a rare cancer? Not too sure what i want at the min prob just to know if anyone else has had this? What to expect.
I am so sorry to hear about your mum. It’s such a worrying time waiting for scans and results so I can well imagine you are feeling nervous. I do hope it comes soon.
I had a different type of cancer so I can’t help with what to expect but I know some people who can. There is a triple negative breast cancer support group on this site - just click the link below and start a discussion
At such a worrying time it might help to find others d who, like you, are thinking about a family member. We do have a family and friends group too
I hope you will be able to find some information and support here in the community
What is a community champ?
Thank you so much for this informarion and links it is much appreciated. I was hoping someone woukd be able to point me in the right direction, Mum has to have chemo first to shrink the tumour before having a masectomy. I want to support her the best way i can, hopefully i will be able to be guided by the community you have given me the link to.
Thank you so much
