Please get an appointment with your doctor. There are lots of things this can be that DON'T have anything to do with cancer. Anytime you have something going on with your body that is not normal, get it checked out for your own peace of mind. Take care, Sharon

      Most women have one breast that is a little larger than the other one. I did mammos. on a lady who had a heck of time buying bras as there was a whole size difference. That being said make an appointment and get it checked especially if it's something new for you.

      I'm triple negative 2B with lymph node involvement. I start chemo Wednesday. I've waited since June 9th to get started. Can't believe how long it's taken to get treatment started. I'm having 6 months chemo 3 months AC and 3 months Taxol. I will then have surgery and possibly radiation. Good luck.

      The number 1 issue was to get the cancer out of me. The MRI was the hardest to deal with. They did their best but they just gave me a lot of Adivan and got the test done.

      I am so sorry you are having this problem, it is so painful. Only your doctor could answer that question. My degenerative disc is in the neck (cervical). It flared up terribly before my surgery for partial mastectomy. It may be different if it is in a different location, I don't know. But in my case, it did not delay my surgery. In fact, the oxycodon that I took after surgery was the only thing that could touch the pain. I was treated by a spine doctor before and after my breast surgery, with the knowledge of my breast surgeon. You should always ask your doctor. For a week or two before surgery there are certain types of medication that you cannot take, like anything that would cause bleeding. My pain had resolved before I began radiation, and I did not have chemo.

      Genetic,mutation in DNA,fibrocystic changes,some benign masses in breast may become malignant......,but most of the times the cause is unknown,unfortunately.

      Everyone is different. Your team should have told you what to do if you have any issues like flu-lke symptoms. If not, I'd contact them as there are things they probably don't want you doing (my place gave me a 24-hour phone number to be used after hours) as a triage nurse answered calls during...

      I was told to check the scar - do a self exam of the scar and report anything new.

      I haven't had a recurrence, but you should be doing self checks, along with your dr. Any time you feel something different have it checked. Prayers to you.

      I had breast implants that were 28 years old. The plastic surgeon worked along side of the breast surgeon, and exchanged my old implants for new ones. The radiologist was in agreement on putting the new implants in before radiation. The side that had radiation is much firmer, and I have to do massages everyday . That is the risk of implants during radiation - that they might harden. I am seeing the plastic surgeon every 6 months - kind of a wait and see . And he has me taking vitamin E which is supposed to help prevent.
