Hello,

I’m new to this forum and recently diagnosed in May with secondary breast cancer (spread to lungs and lymph nodes). I’ve no history of cancer before this and found out after getting a chronic cough I had for over two months checked out. I’m still dealing with the shock of the speed of this and am terrified if I’m honest. I can’t begin to comprehend how quickly it has spread, especially as most people appear to have had some kind of primary breast cancer diagnosis years before developing secondary cancer (atleast that’s how it feels, that might be more my perception) I’ve recently been put on ribociclib and letrozole so coming to terms with the new normal. Anyway, just saying hello for the moment x
