Hi Diane, sorry you find yourself here. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is a horrid feeling isnt it? I had invasive ductal carcinoma grade 2 stage 3 and here I am one year on since I finished chemotherapy. It's a very anxious time straight after diagnosis but it gets a bit easier once your treatment plan is in place. Here is my story which has lots of links to useful information: http://lifeafterlola.com Once you have a treatment plan you can chat with others going through the same on the "going through treatment" thread on this forum. I found this really helpful. Sending hugs. xxx

First of all, welcome & glad you found us.
It is a shock when diagnosed, so what you're feeling is quite normal.
Your diagnosis is the most common one, most of us have an IDC diagnosis & mine was grade 2 like yours.
Do you know if it's er+ (hormone positive) yet?
There is a load of information available & do look at the main BCC site where there is information on all aspects of diagnosis, treatment & recovery.
You will get your head around it & it does settle down when treatment starts.
Unlike other forums, the threads are in reverse order, in that the most recent post is the one you come to first at the top of the thread (page 1 - if there's more pages).
Do come & ask anyhthing you want to here, between us all we've been through all that bc can throw at us.

Hi everyone, I was diagnosed last week with grade 2 invasive ductal carcinoma. Surgery is booked 8th November for a lumpectomy and nipple removal then 3 weeks of radiotherapy.
it’s all happened so quickly. I’ve been looking through threads but I can’t read the first post for some reason.
i couldn’t find any info specific to my cancer.
ive been showing a brave face especially to my children, but inside I’m terrified xx
