I'm sorry you have to join the group. Since MC is more of the less common breast cancer's I use that a positive and say that I'm and we are unique. :)
I have some similarities, but not all like you. I was diagnosed at 34 in 2015. Two years prior my mammogram saw a lump, but for the two years they said it wasn't suspicious. On year 3 what I thought was just a bigger lump turned out to be the MC.
I can't remember all the numbers, but I had a hi proliferation rate. I can check the paperwork at home. I had a low oncotype score at 14% so I didn't have chemo. I had a unilateral mastectomy, and then have been on Tamoxifen. It was ER/PR+, and HER 2 -
My surgeon when my pathology report came back suggested radiation because the tumor was close to my chest wall. My oncologist said it wasn't necessary so I didn't do it. A year later I found a lump, and after all was said and done they couldn't out rule it being the same cancer only because they found mucin. Most likely it was a left over cell that didn't get taken out so a year later I ended up having radiation and finished that this past December.
I'm out running again and lifting weights, got a new job during the process. Take it one day at a time, it's a lot to take in and try to figure out. Know that we are here for you.
