Mastectomy or lumpectomy

Hard decision. Had a lumpectomy last year and now have cancer in other breast

Such a tough decision. I'm bringing @trixie1313 into this conversation as she has also had cancer in both breasts.

Montie: What type of cancer did you have in the first breast? And what type and stage is the cancer in the second breast?

Not so, one breast with invasive carcinoma on the first site and neuroendocrine differentiation in the second site and lumpectomy..again, one breast.

I mis-remembered, @trixie1313. Sorry about that. You had 2 different types of breast cancer but in the same breast.
