    it will not decrease or increase your cancer from what I have read, cancer cells float around everywhere and if you get mastectomy and new ones, they will have to remove everything when if it comes back. My theory is keep what you have until you have to really let go

    My breast surgeon gave me a choice because of my type of cancer. Could've done lumpectomy or mastectomy, and he kept saying the outcome, or chances of recurrence were exactly the same statistically. Hope i helped!!!

    No one knows when cancer will come or come back to anyone. I have met thin vegetarian people with stage 4 cancers, Heavy obese smoking people that survive for years of cancer so there are no rules to cancer. No perfect lifestyle, no removal of healthy breasts will prevent cancer. I do know from reading side effects of tomoxifin and other of those type drugs that my lifestyle would change to include bloodtests, bone tests, muscle fatique, bone loss etc. Statistically I could only find 15% improvement in chances of cancer not coming back. I would only take drugs or chemo if my life was so threatened that this was the only path left. I now look at life as each day is a gift and I thank God for the extra day and spend it wisely because I am not getting that day back.

    I was told lumpectomy 10% chance reoccurs, mastectomy 2% chance of recurrence, but I think a lot of all of this re-occurrence depends on the sentinel nodes and the ax lymph nodes and clear ax are very important.

    I want to use this medium to share my testimony to the public, hopefully to safe life also, Am Brandi Harri, I was diagnosed of Breast Cancer Three years ago, when i had my last baby, my world came crashing down when my Doctor told me that nothing could be done to save me after fighting this deadly disease with Chemo And Radiation for Two Years but i refused to sit back and wait until the day it finally decides to take my life so i went in search of help which i found in the hands of Priest Babaka through his Cannabis oil/Herb Soap Supplement. God use him to bring life back to me and gave my life a meaning again,am alive now all because of him, sir God will continue to Bless you and your family for this good work and word of truth..If you have any issue of CANCER don't hestitate to contact him with this email : babaka.wolf@gmail.com

    there is not always an absolute 100% correct answer. I had a mastectomy only 5 days ago and as the nodes were suspicious, instead of just taking the sentinel to biopsy, they took all of level one and two nodes (you have three levels in the armpit). From what my surgeon, and a second opinion also told me, was that if I had a lumpectomy, I would need to attend daily for 6 weeks for radiation, or I could have the mastectomy and the outcome would be much the same. As mine was grade 3, so the highest in terms of actual aggression, and as i am a paraplegic so mobility is a problem, we opted for the mastectomy to avoid having to travel every day for 6 weeks.
