One of eight women will contract breast cancer in their life-time. This is a community of support and information for those affected by this disease through their personal struggle or that of a loved one.
Hey,, So my mother was diagnosed with STAGE 4 breast cancer in 2015, back then the PET scan showed metastasis to bones specifically speaking; in the skull, the backbone, the ribs, and the knees. 3 years of therapy and treatment got her sick of treatment, she decided that cutting off treatment is the solution and she cut off any hopes for us to make her back off her choice. So, about two weeks ago, She was hospitilized as her condition worsened; she was vomitting all day long and her stomach was in shape of a pregnant woman's.. days later the results came back and ultrasonic showed tumors on liver; the breast cancer metastasized to liver and caused ascites which accumulated a 10 litre inside.
I'm currently feeling like shit, I dont have no sign of hope and I really dont know what to expect. I can accept the fact that she won't be here for long, that her case isn't curable and the treatment doesn't do anything but prolong her life a bit. all i need to know from you guys for how long she can be alive?
So today marks my last dose of AC chemo before switching over to T. AC has been a lot harder than I expected, really kicking my butt with all the side effects, so I am scared of chemo today but so happy that this is the last AC. (I was diagnosed with stage 1 triple negative breast cancer).
Hi all! Kind of long story so bear with me. About a year ago, I had a little bump checked out and had an ultrasound, and it was diagnosed as a fibroadenoma because it was small and moveable and had occasional pain. Almost 3 weeks ago I had a gyno appointment and they took blood and did the regular pap. It’s a new doctor because I’m new to the area, and I let them know about my fibroadenoma. I got a call today from my FNP saying we may need to do an ultrasound. I’m freaking out over how serious she sounded and I’m just really worried about why there needs to be another ultrasound. Any advice/info helps. Thank you.
Should I keep seeking answers or just let it go I'm 26, of average health and weight, no kids 5/2018-left side nipple discharge when breast is squeezed 6/2018-normal mammogram, and prolactin level. Primary says let it be 5/2019- still experiencing nipple discharge, normal prolactin, new primary sends me to general surgery. 6/2019- breast cancer surgeon sends slide of discharge to cytology, comes back with atypical cells, MRI scheduled 7/2019- MRI done and comes back normal, consult with bc surgeon-she says probably benign and she doesnt want to biopsy because it could damage ducts and hinder breastfeeding(planning on kids)
Do I let it go? Do I say do it anyways to be sure? Breastfeeding would be important to me but the alternative?
