The study about younger women and outcome being linked to surgery raised a lot of questions for me.

I wonder if this is throwing too many apples and oranges together. Did a lot of the young women have more aggressive cancers?

So the bottom line is, does a young woman with a slow moving high ER cancer need to get to surgery quicker than a woman with the same cancer 10 years older.

I probably was at just about 6 weeks, but I went with the first surgeon I met with.

I feel like a lot of young women get scared and go for BMX out of fear and shock already.

You deserve a cookie!
