Avatar n tn Carolyn Kaelin, a Harvard surgeon, breast cancer survivor and author of The Breast Cancer Survivor's Fitness Plan, says, "Brisk walking - about 3.0 mph on a treadmill - for three to five hours per week, or about 30 minutes a day, can net big benefits for breast cancer survivors.
Avatar f tn 3% of cases are from women under 30, so the chances of it being cancer are very slim. Also, there is a program called Life for Every woman. If you qualify, then you can obtain a free cancer screening. Just go to or google the name of the program to get a number to call for more info.
Avatar n tn I had surgery four months ago for ductal breast cancer. It was a modified radical and they had removed 19 lymph nodes in which 15 were positive. I underwent radiotherapy for five weeks and now undergoing post adjuvant therapy of Herceptin which will continue till 30 July 2012(completing one year of Herceptin). I am Her +, ER and PR +++. I have been put on Tamxofien 20 mg. I am coping well with the treatment but do have pain off and on in the breast region, shoulder and the arm.
Avatar n tn Hi, My paternal grandmother got breast cancer in her mid 30's and beat it. My great aunt on my maternal side had breast cancer and died. My aunts, mom and cousins on my mom side have issues with lumps in there breast. It seems that every year they have to have a lump removed. Always benign. My paternal grandmother and I are like two pea's in a pod. Every health issue she had growing up I have gotten, right down to thinning hair and a short stature.
Avatar f tn , about 40,410 women will die from breast cancer this year, making it the second most lethal cancer in women. (Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in women.) The good news is that early detection and new treatments have improved survival rates. The 5-year survival rate for women diagnosed with cancer is 80%. About 88% of women diagnosed with breast cancer will survive at least 10 years.
Avatar n tn what happens during a milk duct removal and biopsy under general anasethic due to blood from nipple?
Avatar f tn If a person under the age of 30 is irradiated because of Lymphoma it is recommended that they do monthly breast self exams, yearly Mammograms and ck. ups with their Dr. every 6 months. Regards ....
Avatar f tn I would like to know the different types of breast cancer. Also, when catagorized, what would a catagory 4 be? When doing a biopsy and given a greater than 50% chance that it may be cancer, is that good odds?
Avatar n tn Hi!! Just wondering if anyone out there has info on PATERNAL breast cancer risk factor...there's a strong hx. of BC on my dad's side. I've got 2 aunts and a cousin who have all died under the age of 50, one of my aunts was only in her 30's. I'm wondering about , my risk for BC?? I'm 40 now, @ 26 I had a breast came back as a benign cyst. Anyone out there have the genetic testing done when the risk is on you dad's side??? Thanks for any input.
Avatar n tn Dear Melmo, Recommendations for treatment of breast cancer during pregnancy are influenced greatly by the stage of pregnancy. During the first trimester the treatment options are somewhat limited. Radiation during the first trimester can injure the baby. Chemotherapy, since the baby's organs are being formed at this time, can cause birth defects.
Avatar n tn Genomic Labs in California is the only lab currently in the world that performs this genomic test that quantifies the risk of recurrence in node negative, ER+, early stage breast cancer. It assigns a number 1-18 low; 19-30 intermediate; over 30 high. Most oncologists will let you skip the chemo if your percentage is 10 or under. My number was 26 with a 16% chance of recurrence in ten years (taking into account that I will be on Tamoxifen).
Avatar f tn Hi, I am sorry to hear about your BC diagnosis,but take heart because the type of breast cancer you have(DCIS) is highly curable. There are usually no immediate side effects from each radiation treatment given to the breast. Most patients develop mild fatigue that builds up gradually over the course of therapy.This slowly goes away one to two months following treatment.Most patients develop some pain in the breast that may last for a few seconds or minutes.
329445 tn?1328924102 From what I read, you most likely have breast cancer. Birads 5 is most likely to be cancer. Biopsy now is indicated. If the mass is solid, and spiculated (as mine was - looked like a starburst on the mammo) this is highly indicative of bc.Only a biopsy will give conclusive proof. However, not all is lost - I had a 2 cm invasive ductal tumour in 2004, had 2 surgeries (Lumpectomy and total axillary lymph node removal). FEC chemo and 25 rads.and still here, loving life.
Avatar f tn I had grade 3 dcis &idc, er and pr postive breast cancer last year. I have tried Arimidex, Tamoxifen, and Femera with no luck. Now the dr would like to do a total hysterectomy. I am 45 and stopped having periods 3 years ago. Is this beneficial or not?
518117 tn?1429279873 Biopsy results found out today. Left breast is benign. Right breast is breast cancer. All I know for the present. My surgeon is on vacation this week. I though have an appointment with him this coming Monday.
Avatar n tn Hi Jim, I am sorry about your wife. I just finished with chemo and radiation therapies and want to share my experience. I am scheduled for follow-up mammograms every six months, and MRI on a yearly basis. After the lumpectomy and right before the chemo, I requested a PET CT scan, for peace of mind. It was not offered to me, I requested it. There was no sign of malignancy in any other part of the body.
Avatar n tn Is it worth it for a cancer that could be surgically treated (I also have a history of other types of cancers), And I have a strong family history, with one cancer in my breast the odds of having another cancer arise in the same breast or the other one (that's how my aunt died, they found the new cancer too late), is significantly higher. My surgeon recommended a bilateral mastectomy with my history (over 8 relatives have had breast CA).
517119 tn?1285874992 However I do think it is wrong of you to start nit picking at someone else's positive comments when the focus should be on trying to support a fellow sufferor of breast cancer and help her get through the treatment over the coming months. I wish you a long life and happiness and pray that you remain BC free like all of us hope.
Avatar n tn My doctor wrote in a report about me that breast cancer in women under 30 generally has a poor prognosis. Why is breast cancer in women under 30 a poor prognosis, even though I found it early, I had good markers except for the grade, and I am treating it aggressively?
Avatar f tn It is seen that women who have no children, or have children at greater than 30 years of age are at a greater risk of breast cancer. Physical activity is known to decrease breast cancer risk. Apart from this, regular breast self exams and periodic follow up examinations with complete clinical evaluations by a physician and annual follow up mammograms and or USG after the age of 40 years are recommended.
Avatar n tn I don't know if people scroll down this far to read posts. If you want an answer you might want to post farther up where the conversation is still active. (Nobody has posted down this far for quite a while.) I did read on one post that if you have breast cancer you should get, "Breast Cancer For Dummies" because it explains everything, and I also think someone suggested a breast book by Susan Love (but I could have that name wrong).
Avatar m tn It may detect suspicious areas, but only when cells obtained through biopsy and examined under a microscope can conclusively diagnose breast cancer, Here is some information about the two types of imaging: "According to a new study presented at the 2012 American Society of Breast Surgeons, Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI), also known as BSGI, is equivalent to MRI in detecting breast cancer.
Avatar n tn mammogram, I read an article suggesting women who have dense breasts or a family history of breast cancer should get breast MRI's. So, since I qualified under both those things, I asked for an, not 1 but 2 seperate cancers showed up in my right breast! Needless to say, I have a MRI twice a year now and have no faith in mammograms. Now I read about more and more women like me. What a shame.
Avatar f tn For pass week I notice breast tenderness under my right breast. It's only when I brushed up against it and then couple of times while driving had sharp quick pain. I don't feel any lump of no change in nipple color. I am 49 years old have family history of cervical cancer and colon cancer but not of breast. I don't think its that but wondering what it could be. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/553760'>Can Itchy/pain w/ no visible signs be IBC?</a>.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn There is no way to know whether this abnormality is breast cancer or not without biopsy. It is possible for breast cancer to develop rapidly.
Avatar n tn Breast cancer attacks women of all ages even teenagers. My doctor told me mine was very agressive but is easier to treat than none egressive cancers. He said they respond better to drus.
