    Oh No

    My story so far: I'm 51 divorced female who lives alone. I have a 27 year old married son. I cry when I think of how he has responded in this issue. My mom and best friend have been great support. I have stage 1, I had 2 tumors in my right breast: one is IDC .9 mm and the other is ILC .6 mm Invasive Lobular Carcinoma. The 2nd one is being sent for another test. If it comes back good then I should only have radiation and meds. I'm wondering what are the odds if I were to not get radiation vs having the radiation.
