dear carolyn,

breast cancer is extremly scary. especially when you have a rare one like you. less then 1% of breast cancers come from your type. reoccurences are common as you know. if it mestatzies there is also treatment(chemo) for it. the only real place to be concerned about it is the lungs. the nic reccomends that people with your type of breast cancer also get a once a year xray of the lungs. good luck to you, i hope you stay clear.
