Newly diagnosed, still in shock
I am 47, and a mama to 3 boys . Found a lump a couple weeks ago. Has a mammogram and ultrasound on Friday along with a biopsy and got my pathology today. An absolute whirlwind of a couple weeks.
they actually found 4lumps all in that same area. They biopsied 2 and they both came back relatively the same
IDC, provisional Nottingham 1-2, estrogen receptor strong(95%)
Progesterone receptor 50-75% Her2 negative.
And a lot of other numbers
It's all very confusing. I have a call with a nurse navigator tomorrow to st up an MRI and meet with a breast surgeon and oncologist.
This is just plain scary. My mom had BC twice. Once a lumpectomy with radiation and the second time a mastectomy and chemo. That was 5 years ago and she is doing amazing.
Now the wait begins to figure out next steps. I'm sad to have to join this club, but I am thankful to be surrounded by so much support and love
