I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis. What a blessing it was caught early.

I was able to find @rrarraw who mentioned she has also been diagnosed with Invasive Ductile Carcinoma and thought it would be good to bring her into the conversation to see what information she has to share with you.

Were you in for a routine mammogram when it was found? How are you doing with the news?

Yes, it was found during a routine mammogram I delayed my annual screening because of COVID, especially given the local reluctance of a good segment of the people to adhere to standard cautions (masking, distancing), but the surgeon said it may not have made a difference. The cancer might have been too small to detect during my due mammogram, so in a way it sort of worked out. I’m pretty calm about the diagnosis, the prognosis is excellent. Tumor size 8 Millimeters, so quite small. Still, I’d be interested to hear about which hormone treatment options seem to be best tolerated, with fewest side effects, and still being effective.
