Hi girls,

I just got diagnosed mucinous carcinoma stage 2 breast cancer (left) on 17dec18. I'm er/pr+ and her2-. So far, mri, pet scan, ultrasound showed negative in the lymph node. Pet scan for the whole body was negative too. The lump is about 3cm big and I have multiple complicated cyst on the left as well (not sure what these means and the effect of having them?)

Im caught in a dilemma now of whether to do a mastec of lumpec:( I was told from doctor 1 that mastec would be a better choice as lumpec would not be that aesthetically pleasant plus I have to bear the side effects of RT in the future. Doctor 2, however was quite confident lumpec+rt would be sufficient for me and that the other complicated cysts are not much of a worry.

Can anybody help? :(
