Multifocal or multi centric breast cancer
I am awaiting surgery but I am expecting a multifocal or multi centric breast cancer diagnosis when I have surgery. There are three spots- the largest is 1.7 to 1.6 cm. I am writing because I would like to hear if you have dealt with a similar diagnosis.only the largest is confirmed. They originally told me that my nodes didn't appear enlarged or anything particular on MRI to indicate metastasis. Now I understand there is likelihood to have positive nodes if multifocal.I was having a hard time, now it is all just compounded. I thought i had lucked out because my tumor was not 2cm. Now i fear i may have a worse prognosis. I just want to be here for my family. I can't find too much information online about multifocal so I am turning here. Thank you all.
What are chances other spots are benign? And do the doctors already know? Can they tell by the MRI? delia
