My tumor...really needed it's own post...kwim?

The journey continues....Breast Cancer...

Invasive ductal carcinoma with ductal carcinoma in situ
you can actually see the lymph node invasion on this last pic towards the bottom right corner. These pictures were taked from my oncologist's computer...not bad...
His name is Dr. Peter Kaufman...he's doing a protocol that I might help out with too...more pictures will follow as I know more.
So, I think I have said it before...this is a 8 cm tumor which places it in the stage III category however...i'm not a dumb woman...I just have 3 busy kids and have a busy life...get your mamogram as early and as often as you can...even without insurance most local hospitals can offer you free screenings!!! Don't be and do it today!

Update Oct 08 see new results from second MRI post chemo treatment here
