Hi I have not long been diagnosed with breast cancer. My specialist told me on the day after the operaation that he had taken out all of my cancer by a mascectomy, plus an exillery clearance. I was told thr day after that he had got all of my cancer with the removal of my breast. A few days ago i had an appointment with him. I was told i didnt have two cancers in that breast but 3.. one at 1o'clock..2o'clock and 11o'clock. He was looking very shocked to see what was on the papers he had in his hand. He said to me, he had done all he could and left it at that. i was saying thnx for a few minutes, but he didnt look up from them papers. I knew there was something amiss. The next day i saw my oncologist specialist. she told me the same as my specialist had. he had done all he could. he had gone as far back to the chest wall as he could and he couldnt get no more. I still tested positive. I am so scared. Can someone tell me. Where do i go from here. Has onyone had the same as me and survived?

Hi. I have grade2 breast cancer. I had an operation on the 12th dec 2008. I had a mastectomy. I was told i had an xillery clearance and there were no cancer cells in the glands. But sadly my oncologist told me they had gone as far back as the chest wall and there was no clearance. I am so very scared. I just dont know what to do. I feel so alone. I was told by my oncologist i would be having radiotheropy. Can someone tell me have they had this kind of cancer and survived? I am so scared of dying.
