    Well I got bad news today, my mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I dunno, just sort of venting I guess, has anyone ever had experience with this, I mean I know there is a high rate of people who recover from it... I just dunno, it sucks tho :( :(

    With early diagnosis, it is highly treatable. I know of three women that have had surgery and fully recovered without relapse. Sorry to hear about your mom dude.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Luckily breast cancer is one of the easier cancers to treat and has one of the highest survival rates. I'm sure that it'll all work out fine.

    really sorry to hear that man..


    that kinda hits close to home, as cancer somewhat runs in my family, not breat cancer, thankfully, but skin cancer. my grandma has zippers on her arms from malignant melonoma(how ever the hell you spell it) one of my aunt's(on the other side of the family) died from cancer as well. it's kinda scary because she lives in wisconsin where it doesn;t get nearly as warm as it does here in phoenix; and i just happen to work outside ~40 hours a week.

    anyway, wish her the best for us!!

    malignant=cancer

    benign=no cancer

    Sorry to hear about your mother.. Key is early detection.. if so, it is *very* treatable.. My mother is an oncology nurse. She treats patients with all kinds of cancer from the first diagnosis through to remission or hospice. She has said on many occassions that breast cancer is not bad if its caught early.. Let me know if you have questions that you might be afraid to ask your mother or are confused about.. I'll see that you get accurate answers.

    well she went in today for the follow up thing from the biopsy, they told her that the tumor was like the size of a quarter and that they didnt think it was spreading or going anywhere. So she goes in wednsday to talk to some surgeons about getting it removed, they may have to take the whole breast tho cause they cant get to it or something. I just hope she is gonna be ok, my freind joshes dad just died from cancer and he was saying that he wishes he wouldnt have taken so much for granted... I realized that I do take a lot for granted... so I guess its a good lesson in life that you should never take anything for granted. thanks for all the luck wishing and such

    sorry to hear that man. it sucks. my aunt has ovarian cancer, and she has had surgery 3 times, and has had keymo(sp) treatments done. It would kinda suck if they had to take the whole breast, but hey its better than having cancer. Best of luck to your mom and your family.
    God Bless

    That sux man, I know how you feel, my mother is waiting for the results to come back from a lump her doc found. I lost al my grandparents to cancer, save one who died from heart disease. It sems like u have to have cancer, a heart attack, or a stroke before you reach 60 in my family...
