My mom had breast cancer when I was a kid . It was pretty scary, I was 12 when she had the masectomy. But, 16 years later she's still tough as ever and has never had another bout with cancer. It's second only to skin cancer in its recoverability. She will be o.k., now you just have to convince her of that. I sincerely wish ya the best of luck. Keep us posted... -Steve

M4, I don't personally know you or Kelly as many here probably do, But we will include you in our prayers here. Our thoughts will be with you. Also in reference to survival stories, I know two women who have been afflicted and made full recoveries.... Hang in there, Kiwi

My baby son had serious medical problems and died a few months ago. I don't know anything about cancer, but I know about dealing with doctors when things are going wrong. Both of you will have a hard time remembering things they say, and will not be able to think of questions. You will also miss cues in their mannerisms. Have good friends, not relatives, go to the appointments with you. Have them there for everything, every test. You want to consider your brightest or most level headed friends and ask them first.

You've got my prayers. Please help her to stay on top of this. A lot of advances have been made in this area in the last few years. Do what the doctor says and be there for her as only you can.

A friend had BC and the doctors did a minimal masectomy and rebuilt the rack all at one time. She is walking around today healthy (very) I hope your story ends up the same way. Keep your chin up! Its NOT an automatic death sentence anymore! Good luck

Life is a bummer sometimes. My sister was diagnosed about 7 years ago, and had the mastectomy. Chemo, radiation, the whole bit. Reconstructive surgery a few years ago. She's still with us, still bossy as Hell, and healthier than in the beginning. Prayers or you and Kelly.

M4 - Hang in there and be there for her. This is something, unfortunately, that I know something about. My dad died in June 1995 (57 years old) of liver cancer (survivability rate is low). Two months after he died, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer (stage III - aggressive). It was not caught early (spread to lymph nodes), and after lumpectomy, removal of lymph nodes, radiation, and chemo - she has been cancer free for over five years (deemed a milestone). From experience, I can tell you this - make sure you that you accompany her to as many of the hospital visits, doctor consultations, and treatments as you can, bring a notebook and write down everything said. Believe me, it is extremely hard for the affected person to remember what is said about cancer types, stages, and treatment options. The surgeon my mom had was very sharp and was up-to-date with the latest treatments/success rates. You both need to research as much as you can so that she can make the best choices - and she will have a lot of them. If you write everything down and have that info available for her, it is that much less that she has to deal with. Lastly, never give up hope, and don't let her give up. My dad gave up the day the doctor told him he had cancer, and died thirteen months later. My mom never gave up, and has been cancer free for over five years. You are both in my prayers.

I will Pray for you and your wife and have you added to our Prayer Circle. I have had more than my fair share of Heart-ache and my Faith in God and His Son have seen me through and made me stronger...

I'm sorry to hear that. I will make an appointment to donate some platelets at the City of Hope, Duarte, CA(20 miles east of L.A.) to do state of art research into bone cancers and breast cancer. I know your wife will be okay.

You can bet your happy ass if we say probably,then it is!Get it cut out and XRT. Then Tamoxifen for a time. Go to a big med center for first care for sure. Aftercare can be done close to your doc. cpermd

We had a similar scare mar2000 the chances of it being malignant are not as great as benign. As it turned out it was a fiber adenoma pretty common pretty painful to remove but not a major deal. Just keep your head up dont think the worst everything will be all right
