PRE-Cancer! Yay!

Thursday, January 05, 2012

Bet you never thought you'd see those words together emoticon

I got the second opinion from a breast cancer pathology specialist back today, and they believe it was pre-cancer. Their diagnostic standards for this condition are slightly different from those of the general pathology unit at a community hospital, and by their rules, the abnormalities in my cells are pre-cancerous, but not cancer.

So we stopped radiation, pending MRI results and possibly further biopsy if indicated by the MRI. I will still need hormone therapy as whatever is going on in there is estrogen sensitive, and tamoxifen or related drugs can help keep in from developing into full-fledged cancer. But I DON'T HAVE CANCER!!!


So taking it easy for a couple of days until the soreness/redness/tiredness from the radiation treatments I have had goes away, then I'm back into it!
