Hello everyone, I’ve just found you. I’ve been diagnosed with invasive lobular breast cancer and I’m due to have a lumpectomy this Friday (14th June). I’ve been told that my lump is about 16mm and that ultimately I should be able to “get away” with just having radiotherapy.
I found my cancer not by feeling a lump, but by noticing a puckering (or tethering) underneath my left breast. How long had it been there, I wonder?! My GP said she could feel a lump (I couldn’t) as did the consultant. The mammogram did not pick it up, but the ultrasound did, I had a biopsy and was diagnosed.
I go tomorrow to have the dye in the lymph nodes appointment. I’m sure I will be asking questions on here in the coming weeks!
