UPDATE TO PREVIOUS POST OF 6/10/11:
I should probably clarify a bit. This third area has been suspect to be part of the overall 2-3 tumors all located in the same quadrant of my left breast. It is just that this spot was not found in the original Ultrasound which was biopsied back in January, so we did not know for sure if it was malignant until now. So it is not like it is some new cancer spot, it is just that it would have been easier for the surgeon to say, "Yes, we can do a lumpectomy", if this area was benign. Wishful thinking, I guess. It is the furthest away from the nipple and so makes the whole area to be removed longer than hoped. The other concern is that it is very close to, or right at, the chest wall. So I am trying not to worry more about all this until I hear from the surgeon. Hard to do, though!
