Diagnosed invasive ductal carcinoma. Had 3 lumoectomies since margins weren't clear 1st 2x. Sentinel node negative. Finished radiation 4 months ago. Now on tamoxifen. Was wondering.. am I still considered to have breast cancer?

    I feel the same way; yes I had breast cancer but am an almost 5 year survivor at this point. My diagnosis was just a bump in the road of life.

    Sharla, Breast cancer will forever be a part of your history, but now you can claim to be a breast cancer survivor. Embrace it, stay on top of your follow up appointments, and live your best life. Best of luck.

    I think of having “had” breast cancer; I always think of it in the past tense. The radiation oncologist said to go and live my life, and that’s what I’m trying to do. I will always have to check off the “cancer” box on medical forms, but I am bound and determined not to let it rule my life. I rode roller coasters in October with my sister, I’m going to a Broadway play this coming Saturday, she & I are going to Florida for a week in February, etc. You get the point! I am living my life and you will, too!
