hi i really hope the scan is all clear i had 10 cm of breast affected and 11 positve nodes but no secondaries I know how exactly u feel its hard to have your mortality questioned so young i was 23 at diagnosis good luck with treatment xx @Jodiebeee wrote: Hi I am new to the forum. I found out on Wednesday that I have breast cancer. I was told that joining a forum to talk to others who aspire going through the same thing could have huge benefits to me. As much support as I have no one can begin to understand how it feels to be told you have cancer. Especially at my age after being told numerous times by doctors that my lump was just breast tissue, I had to push for the biopsy, the hospital weren't going to do it unless I really wanted it done, they believed it was nothing. Luckily I was sensible and asked for it to be done 'just in case' I had an MRI scan yesterday which was an experience in itself, now I am very anxious about my results. I am praying that the cancer has not spread. It's always been my biggest fear to have cancer in an organ. As stupid and outrageous that sounds i have always feared it. I have been briefly told about chemo and a mastectomy both of which scare the life out of me. I just cannot wait to be able to say I BEAT CANCER!!! But I know it's a long way away yet!

Hi Jodie sorry to hear of your diognosis. I was diognosed aged 23 earlier this year (april) I had an oesetrgen positve heceptin negative grade 2 with lymph nodes involved there was 10 cm of the breast affected. I had 11 positve lyph nodes involved. When i was 22 i was told i had fibre tissue lump and no biopsy, an investagation propmted by me has recently revaled I was misdiognosed and should of been diognosed aged 22 and i would of had no lymphs involved.Im very angry .Us young women should be taken seriously. I had t fec chemo 6 sessions and a double mastectomy (my choice) with implant based recon and then 15 radiotherapy sessions to a larger area due to lymph involvement. I wont tell you to be positve as I hate it when people say that tome as positivity doesnt fight cancer its drugs and surgery tat do and I find it disrespecful when people say someone has lost their fight as if they didnt fight hard enough and its there fault. I just waant you to know that although raare it does happen to some really young girls like you and me and somehow we get through it and try to find some sort of peace with it and find a new normal best wishes xxxx
