    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom.

This will introduce you to the community and get you started with the help you need right now.


    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves.

    Decision Point (ALDN or Radiation): Since sentinel nodes were positive needed to decide if I should have an axiliary node dissection or just treat the area with radiation. Studies show radiation is as effective in my case and ALND has issues with lymphedema.
