I agree Sharon. My oncologist wouldn't even let me read my pathology report without explaining first. Nobody on this board is really qualified, unless a MD, to say what stage a cancer is. Everyone's cancer is different and a bunch of medical terminology looked up on the Internet is terrifying. My sister in laws report looked scary before her dr explained it to her, she is fine. Lumpectomy n radiation. Mine sounded far worse n ended up being stage 1, very very small tumor. Talk to your oncologist, get second opinions and try not to freak out. I know that is hard, but it won't change what already is. Take care, be strong n these boards are great.
