Re: I have carcinoma both breast

Hi as far as I am aware - carcinoma = cancer. As for the treatment of it, this is something that you will need to discuss with your doc. You sound as though you have very limited information - you need to get more precise info from your doc's - they are your best source of help at this stage! Good luck Di 🙂

Hi Carolyn I am confused! I might have to step away from this one, cause I thought cancer was cancer and you would get some form of treatment. Maybe one of the Cancer Council staff would be best to answer this one for you. Good luck Di 🙂
