Late this spring i found a lump in my breast but didnt do anything about it for 2 months, then in July i asked my friend if she felt it and she did and urged me to call my doc. That was a Saturday, the following Wednesday i had a mamogrham and ultra sound and knew when the nurse called a docter in the room and started wispering that something was wrong, they told me to come back the next day for a needle core biopsey. I was very scared, after the biopsey i was told it would be up to 5 days to get the resaults but i got them that Friday, i was told i had atypical lobular hyperplasia and a surgeon would call me. I decided i wanted a lumpectemy even though i was told my surgeon had never had a paitent have cancer with that condition. Well at post op the resaults werent back yet kaiser had sent my tissue to stanford and i knew then it was bad. On august 20th my surgeon called to say i had invasive breast cancer. Long story short after more tests i had my lymphnodes removed and they were good, about two weeks later i started radiation. Today was my last day and now i start the medication that i will have to take for 5 years. I am only 36 and have no cancer in either side of my family. There were days i didnt think i could make it through the radiation, i have had some seriouse side effects, my skin is burnt so bad and is peeling of and the pain is bad, but im here, and i hope for a long time
