Hi I am new to this site. I have had stage 1 negative node bilateral breast lumpectomies done and have now been offered chemo due to one of the lesions falling into the intermediate range for reoccurrence. I have been told that the benefit would only be a 2% reduction in possible reoccurrance and was wondering why this was offered for this small benefit. Do they have to offer any increased benefit even though the chemo can cause severe side effects? Has this been offer to others in a similar situation? I am very confused and would appreciate any simislar experiences.
