Breast cancer is a cancer that usually originates in the ducts or lobules of the breast. 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!

    Late Night Post

    1
    Hi everyone,I recently joined this dailystrength.org site a few short days ago, but went ahead and added myself to this group because I have a long line of history of breast cancer in my family. 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...

    Waiting

    1
    Hi everyone, I'm new to this and I am still waiting to be scheduled for a biopsy. This whole process started in early July and I feel like it's been going on forever. 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...

    Feelings of Aversion

    2
    Hi All,    This morning on my way to the MRI, I was filled with feelings of aversion, toward anyone within my range, toward everything inanimate or not, toward myself, and toward all I must do to get rid of this cancer. It was quite a surprise to me. It was so strong. I am wondering, is this a me thing, or a normal thing for those experiencing cancer? I am searching for a Support Group I can...

    Newly Diagnosed

    Hello to you. I found out Tuesday that I have Breast Cancer. I've run a gamut of emotions, but am currently at peace with it. Which may not last. Depends on what I find out Wednesday when I talk to the Cancer Specialist. It's early, small, and non aggressive. So I consider it the Best Case Scenario of A Really Bad Situation. It's clear to me that since I did not choose this path, it must be God's...

    Metastasied to my brain?

    I am a 5 year breast cancer survivor as of March this year.  Last week went to see my retina doctor due to unusual eye symptoms and he is referring me to have an eye MRI tomorrow followed by a brain MRI in two weeks.  I am worried that my cancer may have metastasied to the optic nerve in my brain. Today, I had my melt-down and had to take an extra Klonopin to take the edge off.  Last week I...

    Pet Peeve

    Dear Group,I am so grateful for this group and all the survivors. Breast cancer is hard. So many many prayers to all of you.I have a pet peeve. I am not sure if anyone can relate but I recently had a conversation where we talked about cancer. Whether I like it or not, a fear of spread or reoccurance is in the back of my mind. This person said in her round about way that to stop blaming cancer. I...

    Greetings to you all! Like so many others, I am dealing w/ a recent breast cancer diagnosis. Good news is, it was found very early, not so great news is I will have to have a mastectomy (unilateral). Even so, I consider myself very fortunate. So many others out there are dealing with an even tougher diagnosis or a tougher treatment. God really offers peace when a tough time hits, so I'm good!...
