Second time for me
It's good to know this forum exists. Had a lump in my armpit and, after waiting seemingly a long time to get a biopsy, it came back malignant. Same cancer, I think, as the larger tumor that was removed in my mastectomy in 2018. Doctor I spoke to said there is still breast tissue — "axillary tail"— left after mastectomy. I wonder why it isn't protocol to mammogram that area (they did it this week to image the biopsy clip placement).
She ordered a LOT of scans (scary), and I will see the same breast surgeon next week. Stunned and scared of what the extent of it may be, but at least I know the territory. I'm sure once the plan is in place, it may be a bit less scary. Just not a good holiday season at all.
