I was 29, and had just been married for a month. I found the lumpp. Lo and behold it was IDC Stage IIIa with nodes. No family history. I did chemo, then lumpectomy and rads. All was good until we realized the back pain I'd had since the beginning was actually mets. At 32, I've had one tumor removed from my spine (risk of paralysis) and within 3 months, even arfter Tamoxifen & Femara another spot showed up elsewhere on the spine. Aaaargh!

Oh well! It could be worse!

HELLO I THINK I LOST IT. THE LAST TIME I WAS AT MY SURGEONS OFFICE I CAUGHT MYSELF LOOKING AROUND TO NOTICE IF OTHER WOMEN LOST THEIR BREAST. I EVEN STARED TO SEE IF THEY WERE WEARING A WIG. I DID GET SOME FUNNY LOOKS. OH I WAS TALKING TO A LADY WHO WORKS AT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT HERE. SHE WAS DIAGNOSED AT 33 YRS OLD . SHE IS 35 NOW. I HOPE I AM NOT CRAZY. GOD BLESS..

I'm 51 and was dx with DCIS in Feb...high grade comedo with necrosis. My first mammo was at age 27 due to bleeding from nipple, and since 1987 have had a lumpectomy, two excisional biopsies, a wedge resection and a stereotactic biopsy, all benign. Now I can add another lumpectomy and a partial mastectomy to my chestful of scars. My med onc laughed when I saw her for the first time. I had put a small smiley face sticker on each scar. It's one thing to make a written list of them; it's another thing to see all the actual scars.

JoyousATL, we must be nearly the same age! I was 43 @ surgery August 5th and turned 44 last Sept. not long afterwards. Hope we have many more to celebrate in the future.
