Anyone else diagnosed with IDC & ILC, at the same time?
I was curious if anyone else had been diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma and invasive lobular carcinoma at the same time and how often are mammos/us/mris being used to monitor?
Last August found a lump in right breast (previous mammo in May was clear). Dr ordered diagnostic mammo and u/s in September. Mammo was still read as negative but the ultrasound confirmed something was there. Biopsy done and path report was invasive ductal carcinoma, DCIS, and atypical lobular hyperplasia. (ER+,PR+ HER2-). MRI was ordered and showed a larger area of concern that was not seen on u/s, and once again nothing on mammo. Had larger lumpectomy due to the mri and pathology ended up being IDC, ILC, DCIS & LCIS. Was not expecting that! I started on hormone suppression therapy & AI and had radiation. I can not find a lot of info about cases with 2 primary tumors and what type monitoring should be done. Just curious if anyone has had the same experience?
