Hi all, I'm new to this site. I had a lumpectomy in July this year. They discovered it was lobular and a 2nd op was needed to obtain clear margins. That was 3 weeks ago and they told me last Friday that no invasive cancer was found following the 2nd op, just 'in situ' pre cancerous cells as I understand it. The surgeon said he is not worried about it and does not recommend a mastectomy, just radiotherapy and hormone tablets for 10 years. I can't help feeling anxious that what is left behind could turn cancerous and possibly spread before being picked up as it was lobular and therefore a bit harder to spot. I see an oncologist next Monday.
