I was diagnosed at age 47 in 12/03, 4 months after an all-clear mammogram. I never felt a lump, but started having bloody discharge from the nipple. If it weren't for that, I probable would be yet to be diagnosed.

She had a local recurrance in 2002, but is healthy now. In fact, she just had a little girl-two monthes ago today! Our mom had IBC when she was 51, then passed away from it in 1998 at 57. I must admidt I didn't realise there were this many young women on here. I hate this disease.

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!

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.
