     This is my first time on this forum. I come from the fibro forum. My daughter has just been through a biopsy and confirmed with stage one breast cancer. It is small, less than an inch the doctor said. We will have surgery very soon. Can anyone tell me what we can expect next? Thank you for your help.  Chuzzle

Honestly, no one can tell you what to expect. After her surgery you will know more because of pathology report, etc. Tell her it is a good idea to ask for copies of all reports.

My daughter was diagnosed two years after I was, late 1996 and early 1999. We both were doing just fine, and I still am as far as breast cancer is concerned. However, she had a recurrence about two years ago. She was put on oral chemo. Her brest cancer had metastisized to her bones and then later to bone marrow. She recently had a series of tests to see how she is doing and the results will be discussed on July 9th with her oncologist. She was 39 when she had her mastectomy and chemo. She will be 49 in a few days.

Believe me it is harder to deal with a daughter's diagnosis than one of your own. I pray your daughter will do well. When you learn what her path report says you can share here and will receive more help as to what to expect.

Hugs, MK

Linda,

I received your e-mail and thought I would respond this way.  As MK has mentioned it is hard to know what to expect without path reports.  I was dx'd almost 5 years ago.  I had a very rare form of breast cancer and I have been fine since the simple mast.  Please keep us up to date as we will know better how to help you and your daughter.  Right now, know that your daughter, you and your family are in our prayers.  Just stay close, listen, and support her.

Peace,

Candy

As the other ladies said, we can't be sure what will happen next, but since it is Stage I and small, the best case scenario is that they will remove the lump and no chemo or radiation will be necessary.  We will all be hoping that is the case.  Keep in mind, everyone is different and responds differently to treatment. 
 
I was diagnosed with Stage III bc with metastasis to one lymph node over 3 years ago.  I had a mastectomy, chemo and radiation.  My mass as large (6 cm), also.  I am doing fine so far (knock on wood).  
 
Please keep us posted on your daughter's condition.  We will be praying that everything turns out well for her. 
L & H,
Kathy

If it is any comfort, I was diagnosed with Stage 1 cancer 12 years ago. I had lumpectomy, neg. nodes, followed by 6 1/2 weeks of radiation and tamoxifen for five years. Best wishes to your daughter. Hugs, Lauri

Thanks Lauri,
It is a great comfort....Thank You! We have no idea what to expect. The doctor says she doesn't think the nodes are affected but will take one to be sure. It's good to hear that you are 12 years down the road. Again thank you for your post. Linda
