Recurrence in underarm lymph node

Last reply: 2 months ago

I never posted in anything before so here goes, I was diagnosed 6 years ago with dcis with mi, sentinel node clear, I had a mastectomy and no other treatment. I've had pain in mastectomy side on and off but since August it got worse. My gp sent me for an ultrasound in breast clinic. The radiologist seen a swollen lymph node and done biopsy. Got the results Tuesday, cancer cells in node. I had a ct and bone scan since, I'll get results Tuesday. Has anyone had anything similar. Im so scared. Thank you

I am so sorry to read of the anxious week you have gone through. You were expecting your results yesterday and I do hope that hearing from your medical team your results and what their plans are for you will answer some of your questions. Meanwhile if we can be of any support to you at this time do phone our support line and speak to a cancer nurse at 1800 200 700.

We are open over the Christmas period and if we miss your call we will phone you back.

Kind regards

Cancer nurse
