Mixed invasive cancer

Wondering if anyone has expierence with Invasive Mammary Carcinoma with Ductal and Lobular features? I was dx yesterday after a biopsy last Friday. The cancer is grade 2. This isn't my first go with bc. I had IDC 7 years ago. I had successful surgery, radiation and took tamoxifen for 4 years. I stopped the tamoxifen because of side effects. I don't know the hormones status of this new cancer so I don't know if stopping the tamoxifen played a roll in the new cancer. My PCP told me this is a new primary cancer dx, not a recurrence. I see my surgeon on the 27th so I have a couple of weeks to just sit with it. There doesn't seem to be much info online about this type of cancer. Only thing I could find is that it's rare -- making up just 3-5% of cancer dx. After 7 years I was very comfortable in the fact that cancer was in my rearview mirror. I definitely didn't have this on my 2023 bingo card!
