Hello, my mum got diagnosed with breast cancer in August after feeling a lump. Biopsy confirmed the cancer, she then went on to have a mastectomy in September. Today we finally got the pathology results after waiting 5 weeks for them:
-The tumour is 48mm including breast calcifications
- it is Her2 + ve
- ER +
- Stage 2
- Lymph nodes are clear
she now has to wait to start chemotherapy which will go on for up to 6 months and will receive Herceptin injections to target it all. And eventually have hormone tablets.
She's 49. we are just looking for some reassurance and tips from others who have experienced or are currently experiencing the same? my mother is fearing the unknown and is worrying about the side effects aswell as losing her hair and eyebrows!
