Re: Curious - does size matter??

Hi
Dx June 07
Age 33
Bra 36B
Left boob
Lobular lump 3.6x1.3cm
Triple negative
Lymph node involved (think only one but had chemo first which shrunk the tumour down to almost nothing and all the lymph nodes were either clear or shrivelled by the time of surgery so can't tell whether any more than the one they tested were actully infected)
Grade - not sure but think 3?? (I don't ask too many questions, just like to be told what I need to know!!)

Good luck, look forward to the results. I have thought all along that we ought to do some questionnaires and why every one who has been dx isn't given one on lifestyle eg, diet, alcohol, pill, when periods start etc etc

Re: Curious - does size matter??

I have found a lot of people seem to think the bigger the tumour the worse it is, ie more cancer cells to deal with, i always think you can sometimes have a gentle giant or sometimes an aggressive little Pratt!! depends on how the tumour acts.

Re: Curious - does size matter??

I've spent a bit of time on the American site - breastcancercare.org (I think) and with lobular cases, like me it's more common on the left side - interesting. I also read the big debate in the papers a couple of weeks ago about deoderants and how BC can occur more on the left side as the majority of people are right handed and spray for lomger on the left! But that has to go along with all the factors such as diet, dairy, alcohol, HRT, pill, age on having children etc , etc and now I see (according to yesterdays Daily Mail ) the size of our Mothers hips!! What else can be a factor?
Anyway sorry to hijack your size thread!
Love and best wishes to all
