Hello! I am sorry that I don't have any info to give you. I am posting so that this can be bumped back to the top. I am sure that there will be some of our members that will be able to help.
Please be patient. It sometimes takes awhile to get an answer. Eps today being St. Pat's Day. I have confidence that you will get some replies from some of our members.
One suggestion that I would have is for you to write down the questions that you want answered. Then call the physician that diagnoised you and get the answers. I know that it is NOT easy to question a physician or feel that you are in charge but it is something that needs to be done. Have you contacted your local chapter of the American Cancer Society to see if they have any info? Many times they will have info or be able to direct you to the place to find your answers.
I noticed that you are from Kansas. I'm from Mo. What city? The U of K Med Ctr has a great reputation. Have you contacted them?
Hang in there. We'll help all that we can.

When it comes to bc or other problems w/ breasts, age doesn't matter. I believe to have peace of mind, I would go see your obgyn or family physician and get a diagnosis. There is no reason to continue to worry needlessly.
I have a list of questions for my surgeon so will definitely let you know what I find out. In the meantime, I found this:
You may have already come across this, or something like it if you have been searching the web. All the info seems to be pretty much the same.
Good luck to you. Let me know what you decide. If it helps at all, if I were you I would get it checked out for peace of mind.
