    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    In 2012 I was diagnoised with Pagets. I had surgery to remove the nipple on the breast I had a lumpectomy In 2003. They did the margins and I was told I had a recurrance of the first cancer. This time it was determind it was insitu and I had a masectomy with tram flap. I was told I did not need any further treatment. This past October I had a yearly mamo. They said it was negative. About a month ago I found hard lump under my armpit on the same side. I was going back to see the plastic surgeon about a revision to fix the chest wall. I told him about it and he is going to remove it and do a biopsy. I had asked the tech doing the mamo why they only xray the other breast. I asked if it was possible to get it again on that side. She said there was no need because their was no breast tissue. I don't understand why they don't do ultrasonds to make sure. Now I might have the cancer back again. This is the second time the mamo didn't detect the cancer. I think they need to rethink their procedures whom had recurrences. They should not assume the mamo's are 100 %. I am going in the hospital in two weeks. Then it will be the wait to find out if it positive.
