I was diagnosed in January with breast cancer. I had a lumpectomy in February. There were 2 very small tumors, ER+ PR + Her 2 + ((her 2+ in only 1) . No lymph node involvement and clear margins. I attempted Taxol but had an anaphylactic shock to it. I did 3 round of herceptin and 4 weeks of daily radiation. When should I have my next mammogram?

Congratulations by the way to 5 years cancer free That is wonderful
sister is just in the middle of her treatment so is about to finish radiation and was asking when will her mammogram be after the radiation and it is about 5 months. I am about to have mine in two weeks time. And it will be 5 months I just do not want to confuse her
We both know they will advise her anyway. LOL. I am 71 and they say mammogram every two years. I insist on having mine every year and I am glad I did because they caught mine early and treatment was minor and involved only a lumpectomy and 16 days of radiation. Take care
I seem to be just the opposite. I’m 5 yrs cancer free and the radiologist who screens my mri’s and mamos said no more mri’s and mamograms back to yearly.
@A MyBCTeam Member yes, I had the 3D mammogram. But my doctor wanted the MRI just to cover all the bases.
