Tubular breast cancer makes up only 2% of BC and should not metastasize - if a BC patient can be called "lucky", this is the one to have. If any one has had a lumpectomy for a small tubular BC and were pronounced clear around the site and the nodes, did you agree to either/or radiotherapy and hormone therapy or to neither? I am 67. I find the UK online sites more "comforting" than the US ones, which are more factual probably because many US women have to budget their treatments. PS: I am full of feeling for what many of you are so bravely dealing with.
