Catching it early means the success rate will be so high! You will have the most options available to you… and it sounds like you have a really great doctor…. don’t lose any hope! We are all here for you.

My friend was in her early 20’s when she was diagnosed.  She’s now in her mid-30’s, beautiful, healthy, successful, and has been in the clear for over a decade.  As someone your age who doesn’t take care of themselves like they should (I haven’t been to the OB in over 2 years), I should know better.   I am so glad that you take care of yourself and were able to catch it early.  You’re going to inspire a lot of other women, like me, to take better care of themselves.

I’m 46 and was diagnosed on the 5th.  I didn’t have a lump and they didn’t see anything on a mamogram in July but found a cluster on a mamogram taken on 12/23.

I’ve been told they think they’ve caught mine early too.

I’m hoping that I’ll lose some weight as part of this.  I’m mostly just annoyed about having to alter my schedule.

I hope you aren’t experiencing any fears or feelings of being overwhelmed.  The good news is that when the give survival rates, the non-survivors include people whose mortality is attributed to other causes as well!

Feel free to pm me if you want to comiserate!

I’m so sorry you’re going through this.  I hope you know you’re not alone and you can come to us to vent about anything.

Go out and kick its ass.

You’ve really given me a wake up call.  I’ve had ONE breast exam in my entire life (including doing my own).  Thank you for sharing your story.

Much love and hugs.

You are going to beat it and you’re going to be fine. Early breast cancer is SUPER treatable.

On a side note though, do ask your docs if they think it would make sense for you to be tested for the breast cancer genes. Do you have a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer (especially in younger, pre-menopausal women)? If so, there is a good chance there may be a genetic link… and you and all the women in your family would benefit from knowing about it.

((hugs)) I’m sorry sweetie, you must be terrified! My Mother-In-Law had breast cancer about 3 years ago. They caught it early too. She had surgery to remove it, and then radiation treatments afterward. She stayed with us for about a week after the surgery. Obviously it was sore and tender, but she did really well. The radiation was exhausting, especially after the fact (it stays in your system for a while), but she pulled through it like a champ. I think for her, keeping an optimistic outlook and a sense of humor are what kept her smiling through it all. You’ve got this hon. You’re young and strong. You’re gonna show this thing who’s boss!!!
