Aug 11, 2018 · Anyone dealing with Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia (ADH)? in Breast Cancer

That's all great info, thank you.
@cindylb, you mentioned your referral to a homeopathic doctor for diet, nutrition, etc… could you share some of what you learned (about improving your health and what you hoped might stop the breast changes) with us?

Aug 9, 2018 · Fear of radiation after lumpectomy in Breast Cancer

Did anyone else in this discussion besides @rpierro decline Tamoxifen treatment after having a lumpectomy and radiation treatments?

Thank you, @Kanaazperiera.
I'm happy to be part of this forum.
I think there's a consideration to be made regarding how early the condition can be detected now with the incredible imaging available… and possible overdiagnosis and subsequent treatments including mastectomies.
Protocol tells our surgeons what steps to take based on the pathology, size. etc but I'd like to know if anyone has chosen to monitor the situation rather than rush to surgery and/or radiation.
And also how important is Tamoxifen to premenopausal women that have chosen surgery and radiation in the case of stage 1 cancer with clean margins and no involvement to lymph nodes after snb results?

My original diagnosis was ADH and after biopsy it was changed to stage 1 cancer. (Biopsy was 4 days after the original mammogram found a small suspicious area).
I was taken to ultrasound immediately when mammogram showed something abnormal—same day. I’m not sure what the BI-RAD 6 means, but I met with a breast surgeon once pathology of biopsy showed cancer (2 days after biopsy was performed) I had a lumpectomy 3 weeks after that and radiation a week after the surgery. In hindsight I might have kept calm and researched some more…congrats to you.
Have you had a biopsy and heard results yet?
