At age 62 ILC in right breast,mastecctomy,chemo,radiation and Anastrozole, at age 65 IDC in left breast, mastectomy,and currently in chemo. I cannot find information on statistics or anything about 2 different cancers in separate breast, There is plenty about 2 cancers in one breast
I had invasive ductal carcinoma in one breast. Nine months after radiation treatment, I was diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma in my other breast. Quite frankly, it didn't matter to me that the cancers were different; rather, I just wanted to rid myself of my boobs as quickly as possible and I did. Post mastectomies, I did look into the scenario of two different cancers, but found nothing that shed any light on such a diagnosis. I never searched again and it's been three years. Let us know if you find any valuable data.
Thank you, and I am so glad to hear your grandma is doing well,Prayers to all!
My grandma was diagnosed with it in one breast in 1989 and had it removed then in 2000 it different form in the other breast. She's alive and doing well at 88 now.
