Hate to be a downer but praying doesn't/won't work. If it did, none of us would be here.
My mri showed a 7mm tumor and my actual tumor was 1.8cm. Nothing showed up on mammo or ultrasound. ILC is just sneaky. After my decision, the radiologist said she was glad I opted for mastectomy but did not want to sway my decision till I had made up my own mind. The tech also said the same thing to me; she went so far as to do a prophylactic bmx with recon because her family was riddled with ILC. If you have several areas that are lit up, the only way to be sure what is and isn't cancer is to biopsy it. To know for sure what size each actual cancer is, as far as I know, it has to be removed. Many gals here were told their tumors would be bigger and ended up smaller; mine was bigger and I was "promised" smaller. The only certain in cancer is there's no certainty. I hope others post and I hope your doctors can give you some better answers.You can read our tag lines on the choices we've made but ultimately it is your decision and what you are comfortable with.
Best to you!
