I am having continual pain in my breast and visiting doctors who were telling me it was unlikely to be cancer I eventually went for an ultra sound. One tumor was found and up to this time none were felt. A biopsy was done and from there I had a lumpectomy. The operating Surgeon found another tumor. Tissue from these was not good, so a mastectomy was performed. Since then I have pain in the other breast, and once again I am having a hard job getting a doctor to really listen to me. My mammograms are all clear. Doctors out there, please listen to your patients as breast cancer can sometimes be only felt by pain. I have been on Arimidex for 5 years..

I had a double lumpectomy followed by radiotherapy on both breasts, then a mammogram after one year. Regular ultrasounds. Due to suspicious lumps found in ultrasounds a biopsy was performed and resulted negative for cancer. No chemotherapy. Taking Arimidex/Anastrazole. My treatment is taking place in Colombia..
