PASH surrounding malignant breast tumor
I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. My pathology consists of PASH and cancer. I have been told that this is rare as the PASH is surrounding the cancer. I am wondering if this is bad because of PASH's rapid cell division or if it is indifferent. Im ER+ - the tumor is 2cm and my bone and ct scans were clear. Is the 2cm the cancer and the pash? I haven't received the BRCA back or the HER2. I was told this is a grade 3.I have a burning sensation in my right breast from all areas around the tumor including above, the nipple, in the middle of my two breasts and also under my armpit.
Two months ago, I stopeed getting my period. I went to my obgyn and he prescribed an ultrasound. They day before going back for my results I found my lump myself. I swear it was not there before. My dr gave me my results of my ovarian ultrasound indicating that I had a 4.5 cm cyst on my ovary. This will go away and he prescribed me progesterone. Twelve days later I got my menses. He prescribed a breast ultrasound and after al of the tests and one benign path and then a bad mri along with another four biopsies, I have breast cancer. (I had the lump before the progesterone) however post scan (2 weeks later) showed another cyst on my ovary. Im due for my period tomorrow however i feel just like I did the last cycle. It took me 54 days to get my period prior to my last cycle.
Im 35 and Ill be getting a lumpectomy at the end of this week. I start chemo in seven weeks and am concerned that with all of my issues of not menstruating, I will not be able to ovulate to have my eggs taken out to fertilize and freeze as embryos.. I have been regular for years -every 28 days and I have not been on birth control for ten years. My mother took progesterone while she was pregnant with me thirty five years ago however Im told this is not the issue however Im putting this in for statistical reasons.
Is there something there? Ive heard from two drs that my ovulation and my pash/bc are not linked. How can this be?? They are both reproductive organs. Could you explain why the PASH and bc mix is so rare and also if you can assist and tell me if the pash is protecting my body from the cancer or is making the cancer spread. Im not sure if Im grade 3 because of the PASH or the cancer.
Please advise, this is really concerning. Im to be married in eight weeks and my fiance and I want(ed) to have kids straight away. Im nervous about the chemo and about pretty much everything. Please note that there is absolutely no history of breast cancer in my family.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and help me to understand.
