Type: “Infiltrating Ductile Carcinoma” – (Breast cancer of the milk duct)

Stage: Histilogic Grade 2, Nuclear Grade 2, Mitotic, Grade 1

Recommending a lumpectomy, plus radiation 5x/wk. The justification for the lumpectomy is that should the cancer reappear, it would appear in the remaining healthy breast tissue. Were that tissue all gone, it’s quite likely that it would reappear in her ribcage or chest cavity. I follow that logic now. Learned something new.

Doc says 82% of women live 5 yrs

Jude said “I hope I’m in the 82%!” lol

At least we know. Surgery on the 17th.

Thanks for all the love and support. It means a lot.
