Hey ladies,

Just wondering how many BC survivors have had large tumours (5cm+) and how they are doing years out of diagnosis?

I was diagnosed with an 8cm tumour last sept at 34 years old. The size freaked me out, I couldn't believe how big it was. It's always been a worry, so it would be really nice to hear from others.

Dx 9/18/2015, IDC, Right, 6cm+, Stage IIIA, Grade 3, 2/14 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- Chemotherapy 11/1/2015 AC + T (Taxol) Surgery Lymph node removal: Right, Underarm/Axillary; Mastectomy: Right Radiation Therapy Lymph nodes, Chest wall Hormonal Therapy Arimidex (anastrozole), Zoladex (goserelin)

I had manual breast exam along with my annual pap in the Spring of 1995 with normal results . The lab results from my November 25, 1995 post mastectomy pathology exam indicated a 7 X 6 cm tumor with "metastatic poorly differentiated ductal carcinoma involving 22 out of 23 axillary lymph nodes with foci of extra nodal tumor extension". Going on 23 years disease free. I got it into my unscientific mind back then that my cancer was fast growing so it should also be fast dying. After re-reading the report today I decided that I'm NOT going to mow the lawn, do any laundry, or cook today. Best wishes to all.
