Looking to start a discussion for anyone that has been diagnosed with Phyllodes tumor in breast or prostate.
From what I have learned, it's a rare and unknown type of breast cancer and affects less than 1% of women. I have also learned that a neighbor I grew up with,lived next door to for 15 yrs. Just had double macestomy 1 month ago for the very same cancer I have and we are the same age. If anyone has any input, I would be helpful. Thank you I am 61

Hi @mariewurch, welcome. I moved your post to this existing discussion about Phyllodes Tumors so that you can connect with fellow members @johnsoncs1 @knutter1 @marvinjjc and others who also have experience with this type of tumor.
Marie, do you know if your tumor is benign, borderline or malignant (cancerous)? Will you have surgery?
