Hi I was diagnosed with mucinous cancer in April, found a lump by chance on Easter Day but was otherwise fine and healthy so a complete shock. It is unnerving being told you have a rare cancer and I then had to have 2 operations as the first did not get clear margins. I was also thrown to learn that I had micrometastases in the sentinel lymph node and that they had removed 8 nodes instead of the 1 or 2 I had expected. However none of this has changed my treatment plan, the good news about mucinous cancer is they say it is very unlike to recur, so I don’t need chemotherapy. The second operation a few weeks ago achieved clear margins so I have now started letrozole (as it’s 8 for oestrogen receptive) and waiting to start radiotherapy. Am feeling pretty optimistic now as it sounds like I should be able resume normal life quite soon without too much problem. Will have regular mammograms but they say risk of recurrence is very low 👍. Good luck with it all.
