      Unfortunately, I don't think there's dedication at all on finding a cure for cancer in general. There is researches on new treatments, new medications, less invasive procedures. But meanwhile the pharmaceutical industry makes millions with diseases, nobody will give up the profits for the cure....

      Unfortunately, I don't think there's dedication at all on finding a cure for cancer in general. There is researches on new treatments, new medications, less invasive procedures. But meanwhile the pharmaceutical industry makes millions with diseases, nobody will give up the profits for the cure. When you know that 1 (one) session of chemotherapy runs around $30,000/$40,000, you understand what I mean!

      Her2 means you will be given Herceptin for twelve months. It is specifically connected to stopping that receptor. This receptor hangs both inside and outside of the cell. It suggests aggressive cancer.
      About 25 percent a her2.
      Fewer are triple positive.

      What kind of information has your doctor(s) given you? That's where I'd start, sit down and have a discussion about it.

      Vivian's, there are boatloads of statistics out there but no one can really predict the future. According to statistics, I should never have got breast cancer....here I am six years down the road from treatment. My oncologist told me to live my life to the fullest and leave the worrying about my health to him. I follow up on my check ups, now, every six months. It is difficult at this point for you to not be overly focused on this lousy disease. The further away from treatment, you are able to not worry about it as much. Worrying about it coming back won't make it stay away....it will just cause stress in your life. Even if you do have a reoccurrence, that doesn't mean that's the end of the road. We have many women who have reoccurrence's and are treated. Love the life you have, make every day count, try not to put a dark cloud on those days. Blessings to you. Take care, Sharon

      It is difficult to say what is going on. You probably need testing like a mammogram, ultrasound and maybe a biopsy. We can't say because we aren't doctors. Take care, Sharon
