Hello, everyone, I'm new to this community and glad that I found out about it. I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer in 2003, but it metastasized in 2007. My pathology has always been HER2+ and hormone negative. The cancer has been in my lung and brain. The lung metastasis was treated with a surgical wedge resection in 2007, and when it appeared in the lung again in 2008, I opted for radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to burn the tumor. The cancer also spread to my brain in 2008, and I was treated with a craniotomy and five targeted dosages of intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). I've been taking Herceptin and my cancer has been stable for awhile. I'm also a member of the HER2 Support Group message board.
