I was diagnosed back in July, after being called for a mammogram I thought I didn't need for another year since I had just had one the year before. So believe me it was a blessing to have gotten that call. I guess if you're diagnosed with breast cancer mine is the best one to have. After the lumpectomy we found it it was less than a centimeter big and had not metastasized. My lymph nodes were clear and I only went through 44 weeks of radiation and am now on tamoxifen for the next 5 years. I can't lie I'm still very scared that they will find more cancer and I won't be so lucky next time. I find myself more sensitive to anything that has to do with my breasts.
