Hello everyone....this is my first post. I was diagnosed a month ago with stage 2 invasive ductal carcinoma. This was found through a routine mammogram. I had no lumps or any other symptoms. I have been to the oncologist and the surgeon and now am faced with the decision of whether to have a lumpectomy, a mastectomy, or a double mastectomy. I was assured that I would have good results with either surgery but since I am obese and diabetic and have a lot of calcification in my breast that I am at greater risk of the cancer recurring. I go back to the surgeon next Tues. and need to make a decision as they will schedule surgery for 5-7 days from my appt.
