Rare type - salivary gland in breast?

I was diagnosed last week. Apparently it is very rare. It is a salivary gland/mimic, in my breast? They are removing the lump next week and need to send it away to Nottingham for tests, because there is no-one locally who has experience of this type.


I rang Cancer Research and they can only find two cases of this type. I can only find a Porugese paper on this and it appears that Cancer Research was only able to find the same.


Anyone else had this? has this? knows anything at all about this?


I have very limited and sketchy information and it is not helping.


Good luck to all x and take care x
