I'm almost 2 weeks out from mastectomy (on May 26) for a recurrence after 9 years on tamoxifen. After biopsy results were in on the recurrence, I had some odd spotting and went to see my GYN who decided to do an endometrial biopsy because the endo lining was very thick, Bam! Endometrial cancer, too. Hyster scheduled for mid July. What a summer it is going to be!

I'm stunned. Three cancers before age 53? Really? What are the odds? I'm BRCA negative and the genetic testing came back negative, although we have breast cancer in our family history.

Meeting with ONC next week. Any suggestions on questions to ask or courses of action?
