Anyone out there also diagnosed with tubular carcinoma?  I know it is a rare kind, rarely spreads, is highly estrogen positive and has a good prognosis.  If you have tubular carcinoma, I am wondering about your treatment.  I had lumpectomy, radiation, and tamoxifen.  I am curious to know if all of this treatment is necessary for this kind of breast cancer- tubular, stage 1, grade 1, 0 lymph nodes.

 Thanks, I look forward to learning more about tubular carcinoma related to treatment plan.

Hi 614,

Here is some info on what cupping is http://www.webmd.com/balance/guide/cupping-therapy...

I also have used cupping on a calf pull and it really helped. Where I go for treatment they use a plastic cup and a handheld suction pump.

Here is some info on graston. http://www.grastontechnique.com/patients-info

I just picked a page to show some pictures. This also seems to be working for me. I know there is an issue with massage treatments and bc so I talked to my nurse advisor first and for my case it seems to be fine. I can't recommend this for all.

Dear Brightsocks:

THANKS!!

I have been working so many hours and I have not had a chance to login to this website.  I really appreciate the information (even if I am thanking you months after you posted.)

I go for regular massages because my oncologist said that this is fine.

I hope that you are doing well.

614- Tomorrow will be must last meeting and goodbye to my surgeon. I am not sure if anyone else used vitamin E on their scars but it really helped me. My scar is fading into my skin and is now less noticeable as time rolls along. I am glad to have one less member on my health care team. I will now be under the care y doctor of my family doctor with trip in every 6 months for 2 years then once a year if I have an issue. I have yet to get the call for the removal of my tattoo spots which I really want removed. I should have asked for the tape spots that is my one regret.

Dear Brightsocks:

I only saw my breast surgeon for the surgery and for the post op visit. My medical oncologist is the doctor whom I see on a regular basis. However, I had my surgery in Texas and I live in Florida so I had to see a different doctor. I LOVE my M.O. and I am so thankful that I was lucky enough to become her patient. Thank G-d! My M.O. is the "guru" of BC in Florida, where I live. I had to be very persistent to be able to have an appt. with her. (I am proud of myself.)

I am glad that you only have one more meeting with your surgeon. You will be under competent care from your family doctor. Good luck. I am glad that your scar is fading and is less noticeable.

I did not even know that it was an option to have your tattoo spots removed. Who does that? Good luck. I hope that you will get the call to have the tattoo's removed. Be persistent so that you can have this procedure.

I am happy for you.

614- My meeting went well today with my surgeon I thought this was the last time we will meet but she likes to follow people for 2 years every 6 months. So I am fine with that I enjoy our little talks. I have always had a pain under my right arm in my armpit which she explained it to be breast tissue. I could never pin point the exact spot thinking it must come from on source she explained it could be a larger section of breast tissue. I have had this check over and over from all member of my medical team.

Just an update.

Nothing much is happening to the spots. They are a bit red with no colour change. Everything about my BC comes down to counting numbers for me from the start/end of treatment days, to the clicks of the radiation treatment and now the zaps of the removal of the tattoo marks. I never have been so into counting in all my life thank goodness for learning to count to 100 in Kindergarden :)

Went for my second blast to remove my spots. Dr came in and asked "did we freeze you last time?" No but you can if you would like! He then said no that would take too much time. Yikes! Too much "time" to manage my pain.... Thanks a ton. Well I went on and he blasted away instead of the 17 clicks from the machine he went to 40. He wants them gone as much as I don't want to return. So now I will just wait to see what will happen to them as they heal.

hi. I'm not very good at links but if you google pubmed and then search tubular breast cancer there is an article at no 18 about overdiagnosis by mammograms. Para 2.2 is very reassuring. It says 5% of tubular cases have axillary mets but even so, it will almost certainly not kill any of us unless we subsequently develop a more aggressive cancer. I'm very happy to read it myself because i had 2 tiny satellite tumours discovered on lumpectomy which I was very worried about but it seems there was a good chance they wouldn't have developed even if they had been left alone. I had whole breast rads and I'm now on tamoxifen for almost a year. I'm happy i had the optimum treatment for me. I see you had diagnosis of dcis recently : is this a recurrenceor a new cancer? How are you doing?

Hi, I am diagnosed with tubulo lobular carcinoma on July 6th 2017, Had a sugery and it was found 1.5 cm Cancer lump was removed with margin of 2 cm each side. Post surgery Histopathology report confirmed that cut margins are free of cancer. It shows ER/PR + and HER negative , Ki-67 is 20% which is good news. No carcinoma in any Lymph node.

Oncologist suggests going for Radiation and Medicines. My question is that if Tubulor carcinoma is not going to come back from what I found from Internet, it is completely removed from my body, Histopathology report says Intraductal carcinoma is not seen , do I need radiation? Please send me your reply to this board. I appreciate for any suggestion regarding treatment. I don't want to take radiation or medicines. What are risks?

Dear India:

This reply is probably too late, but I would go for a second opinion. (In fact, I went to 3 radiation oncologists.)

Please be aware that you can only radiate an area once.

Good luck.

Howdy CAM8 - Welcome. Yes, apparently we are the lucky ones! I just had my 7 year from diagnosis anniversary. I had a lumpectomy, actually 2 of them as they didn't get it all during the first surgery and then I had radiation. It all went very smoothly. Other than having to live away from home during treatment, as I am from a rural location, it was a breeze. I did find that I was tired for a long time after the radiation. I'm assuming that is what caused it, but who knows. I was told that I could choose not to have radiation given the excellent prognosis of Tubular Carcinoma...but as it is still considered an "invasive" cancer, I opted to be safe rather than possibly sorry at some point in the future, and had the rads. Best wishes with your surgery and treatment. Keep us posted. I'm BRCA2+ have you been checked for a mutation? Just wondering....

My surgery site was on the left side, on the side almost, so there was no nipple involvement. I think there must have been quite a bit of swelling for a very long time as both breasts seemed to be pretty much the same size. The last year or so I have noticed that the treated breast is about half the size of the other one. I guess I'm fortunate that I don't have large breasts anyway so it's not usually noticeable, except sometimes my shirts...if they are button up, seem to hang a bit off center. Nothing I can't deal with with a little periodic rearranging lol. No, I had no need for reconstruction. I should add that the first surgery I had was called a lumpectomy and the second, a partial mastectomy. If I had only one surgery, I bet you would not be able to tell the difference at all in shape and size. My lymph nodes were clear! :)

hi, CAM8 and welcome. How did you get on with the surgeon? My bc was a lot bigger than yours but still small at 1.3 cm, mixed dcis/tubular. Neither the surgery nor the radiation caused me any significant problems and my post lumpectomy breast still looks very normal. I have now been on tamoxifen for 18 months with minimal side effects and no weight gain. This thread has been fairly quiet lately because tubular bc is so rare but someone will always respond when you post. The diagnosis, no matter how favourable, is a complete bodyblow and just knocked me for six. This is a good place to come for empathy and reassurance as well as information. Keep posting and let us know how things are going.

Thank you for the support. Grateful it is Tubular Carcinoma (with DCIS) but still a little bit of a shocker. It was small (5 mm) and they say most was taken out with the biopsy. We are to schedule the surgery in the next two weeks. Going to get some genetic testing which they recommend for someone my age (49). She is recommending radiation treatment and not sure yet about hormone treatment. That will be discussed when all pathology comes back. The surgeon was so reassuring and took her time with me to explain every detail. Thanks again for your support and I will definitely keep posting!!!

Howdy Cam8,

Glad you don't have to wait too long for your surgery. I don't remember having too much pain after surgery...I did have "cording" in my arm from underarm to elbow. I gather this was like a swollen lymph channel. It was like having a piece of rope in my arm. It went away after a month or so I believe. My advice would be just to take it easy and rest for a bit after your surgery. Best wishes...I hope it is fast and uneventful. May your nodes be clear :)

I have a mammogram booked for Monday...I get checked twice a year cause of the mutation...alternating ultrasound with mammogram. Should have been an MRI but I am allergic to the gadolinium...so no more MRIs for me unfortunately :(
