I had a .4mm invasive ductal carcinoma grade 1. It was removed and I had 33 treatments of radiation. Am now taking a pill that blocks estrogen for 5 years with a less than 5% reoccurrence. (I am otherwise very healthy) Do I have a good chance of survival?

    I have(had) invasive ductal carcinoma 3 separate tumors which left me only with the option of a mastectomy I chose to have a bilateral for my own peace of mind and will undergo 8 months of chemo startin next week followed by 5 year hormone therapy just today I received my pet scan results and I am cancer free chemo is being done as a preventative measure because I'm only 29 it's an option u might consider cause it will kill any cells that may be floating around my oncologist said because if my age it was the best way to prevent reoccurrence I didn't new rads cause I had all the tissue removed! Best of luck to you!xoxox

    I'm no expert but had a similar cancer this last year. Can I ask whe so much radiation? You definitely have a great chance by catching it so soon. My concern would be the tamoxifen if that's the treatment your on. It has been known to cause ovarian cancer and anyone with breast cancer knows that the two go hand-in-hand. So stay on top of any signs or symptoms of that. I'm also on Tamoxifen and have opted for a hysterectomy to reduse my chances. You keep positive and try not to worry too much. Good luck to you.
