Symptoms of breast cancer can include a lump in the breast, a change in size or shape of the breast or discharge from a nipple. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, this is the community to discuss your experience, find support, and meet others going through the same. Fight on!

    Hello everyone,I've been living with breast cancer for quite awhile and was doing really well with it until I had surgery a few weeks ago and because people around me don't know me as a person who cries I feel like I need more of a support system which is why I decided to join.  Up until the surgery, I cried once, on the day I got the call saying the biopsy was positive.  That was in January. ...

My grandmother had it, whom I was never able to officially meet before I was born because she had already passed. I will be 20 soon, but around the time I had to have been 14 or 15 years old, my mother...

Today I spoke to my doctor to get more details and she told me my Bi-rad is 4C with some microcalcification. She also mentioned the shape of the calsifications (when I asked)  was pleomorphic.... Not sure what that means. I am...
