2021. Another chapter in my cancer journey started on my 63rd birthday. I found a lump that Sunday night, had an onchology consult followed by an ultra sound and biopsy on Monday, on Tuesday I received the results and on Thursday I meet with my oncologist to figure out what comes next.

2012. Found a lump on Monday, saw a Dr. on Tuesday, went to referral on Thursday, received diagnosis on Friday.

I have "Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma with no lymphatic invasion".

The next step is to see a surgeon on Tuesday to discuss how much to remove and when.

I've told my family and a few key people in my life one of which turned me onto this site.  Because it will be **so** much easier to write only once about what is going on when it happens, I hope every one that cares about me will understand that I won't be writing them directly.  Instead, look to this site to keep informed.  OK?
