Cancer Update

March 24, 2020

So, I had a call with my Surgeon. We went over my MRI results and I need to go back in for an MRI/biopsy for my right boob. Yeah. My left is where we did the previous biopsy which came back as Invasive breast carcinoma. We knew that already, and we were to schedule the lumpectomy once the MRI results came back.

The left? Nothing different. For the right? Oh boy.

“There is an area of nonmass enhancement in the 10:00 axis of the right breast posteriorly, measuring 27 x 16 x 13 mm in size. This has some areas of persistent enhancement making it mildly suspicious for DCIS.”

So, they want to check it out. Next week, at 6:30 in the fecking morning, I’m getting a MRI focused biopsy on my left, to see if it is just something weird, or DCIS. Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is non-invasive breast cancer. DCIS isn’t life-threatening, but having DCIS can increase the risk of developing an invasive breast cancer later on.

And now. What’s happening. Well, I go in next week for the MRI/Biopsy. And we will see what the results are, before scheduling surgery. Plus, the hospital is trying to get the surgeons to push out surgeries when they can, due to a lack of masks and other supplies. If that happens, she’s gonna put me on some sort of hormone drugs to halt the cancer from spreading, while we wait for an open spot.

More terrified feels and thoughts. Trying not to be overwhelmed by it all. I was tracking better mentally when we were thinking “oh, just a quick lumpectomy and some radiation”.

I cannot concentrate today. While I was writing the post, this song game on. Fitting.
