August 26, 2003, my surgeon expected to remove a benign breast lump
, but found a 5 cm malignant tumor in my right breast. The tumor & 8 lymph nodes were removed. 1 lumph node was malignant. The pathologist report showed very narrow margins, very aggressive (Bloom Richardson 9/9, ER negative, PR negative, Her2/Neu overexpression 0. The PET SCan showed no evidence of disease elsewhere. Two weeks after surgery, I started 4 cycles of Adriamycin and Cytoxan administered every other week.
