I have just learned that I have a very large malignant tumour in my right breast. I discovered it 3 weeks ago and my family doctor immediately had me booked for a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. My fist visit with my surgeon is May 22. Radiation has already been mentioned to me.
I have almost accepted that I will need a mastectomy but I am so afraid that it has already spread.
i am a very youthfull 68 years old, very active, I swim 1/2 mile every day, eat well and maintain a good weight, BMI of 19...do not understand how this has happened to me.
