Phyllodes - how fast is fast when you’re talking growth of

Phyllodes - how fast is fast when you’re talking growth of I had my tumour removed yesterday under general. I am still feeling ropey, but even more narked that i dont know what the tumour was… I have previously been advised its a 3/4 because of teh active levels of division present but that really didn’t mean anything to me!!!

Does growth mean its malignant?

The tumour was 1.5wide cm x 1cmtall x 1.3cm deep weeks back when the core biopsy was done, but at the pre-op ultrasuond scan yestersay it was 2.4cm wide x 1.8 cm tall x 1.5 cm deep.

What does this actually mean? Does having this condition make your mind go a bit fluffy?!!!

I have my next appointment with my consultant -at- MA next Thursday - both they LOVE to keep yuo hanging on doent they???!!!

so sorry… that you didnt get any replies to your post…I often search for phyllodes but only the same 5 always come up!
I never think to look under “benign conditions” as mine was malignant, and they can be a real pain even if they are benign!
At least your`s isnt! Thats great news!
All the best
