Oh. Did I mention the Radiology doc was not correct. I have Lobular cancer, the same kind as moms. :( I learned that lobular cancer doesn't lump up. It SPREADS out and adds bulk. It is harder to feel. Isn't that special? All these years of doing self exams looking for a cancer lump and I get the kind that doesn't lump. The descriptions Dr. Joe gave is why most Lobular cancer is detected. Sudden changes in size, heft, shape or skin texture are signs of Lobular cancer. So last Spring when I asked KJ how long had righty been larger than lefty...it was the signs of cancer and I did not know that.
Dr. Joe's wife Mary, (Dr. Mary) was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. (2009) She had a mastectomy with chemo as well. So he knows Breast cancer from the clinical perspective and as a husband. He related so well with Keljames too.
