    Anyone have malignant phyllodes tumors, then ductal and lobular breast cancer?

    10 years ago I had a lumpectomy for a malignant Phyllodes tumor (very rare type of breast tumor). Last year I was diagnosed with invasive ductal and lobular breast cancer in the location where my phyllodes tumor was. Doctors do not concider it a reccurance but an new cancer?

      My Mom had a phyllodes tumor in her breast. She had the whole breast removed as the tumor was quite large and has been cancer free for two years now.

      almost 5 years ago
