Back in Oct. I found a lump on my left breast. It didn't hurt never changed in size so I didnt do anything about it. Around Christmas I mentioned it to my mom and she told me I better go get it checked out. But your all know us kids say oh its ok moms dont know nothing. Then a few weeks went by and I was sittting in church and lighting bolts hit me that I better go in to the Dr. But I wasnt sure which dr. To see. But I chose to make appointment with my OB. She looked at it and says we better do a mammogram and they will probably do an ultrasound. So two weeks went by and I went in they did the mammogram and ultrasound and then the Dr came in and said it dosent look like a normal cyst so we better biopsy it. So I went back on Tuesday the 12th I was told I would have the results by Friday. All of my fears hit really hard all of the what-ifs kept popping in my head. But I had a nurse tell me that sometimes type 1 diabetics get diabetes lesions so I went home Googled it and it said 10 to 13% of women get it it's not cancer they usually don't even do anything for it just watch it. So I felt better about the results. And I kept telling myself it was going to be okay. I went to work the next day on the 13th at 5:30 I got a call from the nurse. She told me to call her back she left me her cell phone number. Saw those fears and anxieties pop back up. I talked to her and she told me I do have breast cancer and I needed to come in the next day with my husband and my mom. To talk about it and see what we need to do. On February 14th I discovered I have invasive ductal cancer grade 2 and low grade ductal insu cancer. All those words are really hard to understand basically the cancer started in my milk duct in my breast and it's starting to leak out of the duct. There are so many different perspectives of how to treat this the best scenario I'm hoping just to take it out by surgery check my lymph nodes and treat with radiation. The worst scenario is in my receptors estrogen and progesterone and my growth hormone receptors come back negative and if it spread into my noids I need a treat this with chemotherapy and radiation. February 19th we are planning on seeing the doctor the surgeon the radiation doctor I'm making the plan for surgery. I appreciate all the love and support for my family and friends. I am going to beat this!
