Hi jenny I think that is my fear too more scared of the treatment than the actual cancer I have an appointment with the onc on Wednesday so will get all the facts then and hopefully will be able to make a decision x x
Please do some research and in my option at end it is your immue system win the battle. People do all treatment but cancer still come back and I only did conserving surgery, refused the further treatment as well as mastectomy and I am fine now. My main job is strength my immunity and good life style and good food and excersice and positive mind. I am more fear of treatment than cancer itself and that is why I refused. Sometimes people not dead of cancer but dead from over treatment.

Hi, I am 42 and Grade 3... I was also given a choice of chemo or not. Chances are with grade 1 you'll be fine without but 25 is very young to get this and you have a lot of living ahead of you. I would consider how you would feel if there was a recurrence and you hadn't done chemo, would you blame yourself? Chemo is not fun but it's just a few months of your life, I can't tell you what to do but think carefully and make a decision that you feel happy with.
Hi ladies I was diagnosed back in December at ages 25 I have grade 1 idc with no node involvement and clear margins! However I have now been told I need to decide weather or not to have chemo? 😞 they keep saying it's because of my age but with such a low grade and no spread is chemo needed? I would love to hear from you all and if anyone has had a similar diagnosis and age that would be very interesting to see what path you choose and why. Also I will add that I have already done ivf as originally they told me deffo chemo but now it's my choice 😞 x
