hi folks, I posted my initial story in the Stage I forum: https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/108/topic...

I just had a call with my BS to talk about my pathology report, which ended up being good and bad. So turns out there wasn't as much cancer in my breasts than they thought based on the mammos, u/s and MRIs before my surgery. All the sites they removed were smaller than they thought, which is good. The bad parts were that one of my lymph nodes showed a small amount of cancer, so it's definitely spread. The other thing is that the other suspicious area that was removed was diagnosed with atypical lobular hyperdysplasia. I'm still not really sure what that means for my breast health altogether, but my BS said that we'll definitely now have to do more testing to see where else may cancer may or may not have spread based on the lymph node. I'm not sure what I was really expecting, but I wasn't really preparing myself for more cancer. This sucks.

Hope you are doing well. ADH is pre cancerous changes.

I’ve had BC two times now, sadly, my last after mastectomies and total hysterectomy was 3 cancers and ADH in one cm of tissue left behind after mastectomy

I had ILC,IDC, DCIS and ADH.

I am doing pretty well now finished chemo and radiation still on Herceptin infusion and Arimidex

Let me know how you are doing.
