Hi JenJen, just noticed yr post and wanted to say that I am indeed one of those ladies who had positive lymph nodes and, as far as I am aware, have no further spread. I understand that my health authority doesn't routinely scan to check for further spread unless symptoms are present. It's interesting how health authorities differ on this but I suspect it also depends on the number of lymph nodes affected and cancer grade. Wishing you the very best.
Found the lump on 25th Sept, had hosp appt on 13th oct. Mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy on a 2.5cm alien in my right boob. Consultant was 'pretty certain' that it is cancer. We are taking that as 'yes it definitely is' as we dont think they would have said that if not certain and they must have seen thousands. Have to wait until 30th for results. I feel like I'm in no mans land at the moment. Keep asking my husband to repeat what they said in case im dreaming.
Have told son but not rest of family, waiting until after 30th when I have more answers.
Shall be using this forum a lot I think as im the type that wants to know whats happening and what will happen.

Like you I have just been diagnosed with cancer. Had a guided wire biopsy done. Partial laboratory report read grade2 invasive ductal carcinoma with lobular features left breast.Now I am waiting impatiently for Monday evening when I will have the complete result regarding receptors etc.They are taking another ultrasound from different positions. Depending on the final result they decide if I need an MRI before surgery.This waiting is killing me.I want to get it over with as soon as possible.
Hi all, I was diagnosed on the 28th September. it's been a roller coaster of a ride since then. Had mastectomy Wednesday this week and node biopsy. This forum is fabulous with lots of information and tips and someone just to sound off to. I wish you all well in your forthcoming treatments 😕
Sorry to hear your news, I was diagnosed on the 28th September and received my final results on Monday. A bit of a wild ride at the moment but I have found this forum incredibly helpful and the support is great!
